June 12, 2010 Pottery Garden and Gulf Beaches Truthful Update

Good Morning Family and Friends, I was talking to my sister on Monday about the trip she has planned to Port St. Joe, the end of June. Because of the news reports they are getting in Atlanta she was ready to cancel. I told her to hold on, I was headed over to Navarre Beach to visit a friend and take a look for myself. Navarre is west of us, between Pensacola and Destin. Tuesday night Cheryl and I walked the beach with our high powered flash lights. The sand was beautiful white with a little seaweed washed up, and the water was so clear we could see fish in the waves when we shined our lights into them. We thought we might have found one of the famous tar balls, about the size of a gum ball, but it turned out to be an ocean turd. There was no smell of oil in the air. Bottom line, no oil 130 miles to our West. When I reported the all clear to my sister she said I needed to post some pictures to reassure everyone. I took some shots on the way back to the Pottery Garden for you to enjoy. If your in our area stop by and see us. The Pottery Garden is full of New Fountains and Pottery of all sizes, shapes and colors.

June 2, 2010

Welcome to Our Garden 2010 As you can see I'm not very good at this blogging, but there's no time like the present. I would like to start off by saying Thank You to all our New Customers, and a special Thank You to all of our returning Customers. You keep our business going! FYI-our beaches are beautiful and white(no oil), we still have lots of fresh seafood, and beautiful sunny days. Our hearts hurt for the people and wildlife affected by this tragedy. We also worry how this will affect us. But for now we remain hopeful and optimistic that our beautiful home will be spared. If you have any questions, and want to talk to someone who is here, feel free to call me on my cell phone 850-541-2839. The Pottery Garden is looking beautiful. Our large Plumeria Trees are blooming. We had 120 cuttings flown in from Hawaii, they are all leafing out and many are already blooming. Our cuttings are Rainbow, White with a yellow throat, Pink with a yellow throat, and Yellow. I'm going to attempt to post pictures. We have lots of new, beautiful Pottery and we think our Fountain selection is the best on the Gulf. I'll do a couple of blogs on each real soon. Our Gift Shop is full of unique items and local art. We're keeping our fingers crossed and our thoughts positive for a busy summer, so come and see us. Dena
