Welcome to Jim Sommerfrucht's in BayView

 Jim welcomes PSST members

(Please note: Placing the cursor over a picture gives you some info on it....)

This month our society visited Jim Sommerfrucht's home and garden in BayView. As always, Jim had the garden in fabulous condition and we had a beautiful winters day in South Texas. Society members enjoyed roaming around the grounds prior to the meeting. After lunch, a society meeting was held by Coastal Vice President Ed Ladd. Up coming meetings, the Brownsville Botanical Garden project and membership were discussed. Additionally, John Dillard our treasurer gave a treasury report. Below you will find the pictures taken of the meeting by John and Mary Barkkari.
