After a very rainy start to the day the weather cleared just in time for the afternoon meeting at Philip and Rebecca Tompsett's home and garden in Santa Cruz.  Set on a sprawling 3 acres of lush land with a majestic Samaan tree, garden club members and their guests enjoyed the scenery and the good company.  Philip has a large and varied collection of potted plants and was very willing and able to answer numerous queries.  Sincere thanks Philip and Rebecca for being such gracious hosts. Click here to see more pics of the Tompsett's garden
