Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
— Henry James
Summer is here! Not that you needed us to tell you that. Yes, it is hot, and at times brutal, here in the Coachella Valley. Nevertheless, we are excited about this summer. Not only is our annual Summer Survivor party happening on August 13 we are using the quieter July and August months to do some heavy-duty planning for Deepwell events for this coming fall, winter and spring, utilizing your input to help guide us. Below you will find the highlights of the survey we sent out last month. We are delighted with the participation and with the thoughtful responses and comments. We are taking it all in.
When the sun isn't blazing, get outside! Check out some smart gardening tips from Verna below and learn the benefits of waiting to trim your palm trees until after August. Missed the annual meeting? We've got you covered there, too.
Whether you are spending your summer in town or are off to cooler adventures, we look forward to seeing you this fall at our Deepwell gatherings. Until then, stay safe, be well and stay in touch!
