	Sally Walker is the amazing lady who runs Southwest Native Seed.  Her
daughter who lives in Raleigh was here last week and said everything was
fine with her mom.  She also said that Sally is planning to attend the
NARGS National meeting next May 5-8 to be held here in Raleigh.  For those
that have ordered by mail, this will be a great chance to meet her and many
other wonderful gardeners.  The talks will have a strong emphasis on bulbs.
