Thank you SO much, Susie! We loved "living" on St. Thomas, and felt so at home in the beautiful Bluestone apartment. We're making plans to have our wedding in the garden, there, next spring! See you then!

Susan, I just wanted to let you know that I never felt so rested after a trip, before. You have some of the best books I've ever read! It was so good to just lay out in the hammock, watch the harbor and all those pretty little birds, sip iced tea, and feel everything slow down to a normal pace. Just thank you for letting me have the opportunity to know there is another, simpler, way of life.

That was FUN! I hope you'll let us come back...I know the kids were just bowled over! Thanks for helping us find that fishing trip and hope you enjoyed the salmon (wish we could have taken it home, tho'). Just thanks for everything, we felt so at home...just like you said we would!

Dear Susan,

I wasn't sure if the artist's workshop and all you said you provided, would be worth the expense. It sounded like one of those too good to be true things. I want to tell you that I learned so much, saw so much, had such a good time, made some good friends, and will tell everybody about The Garden of the Silver Palm. And, I'm coming back in March for that workshop, so will you put me in the Veranda, again? I want to do some more watercolors of that view!

C.G.
