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 three acres of lush land with a majestic Samaan tree offering cool shade, 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 the numerous queries.  Sincere thanks Philip and Rebecca for being such gracious hosts, we thoroughly enjoyed the meeting. Click here to see more pics of the Tompsett's garden
