Performance at Suncrest Gardens

Suncrest Gardens was a nursery specializing in rare and unusual conifers owned by our cousin. This particular planting captivated my heart with its contrast of shape, color and texture. A slight bit of rearranging made the grouping more balanced. The name is a nod to my years of experience working in the theatre. As a note: all the trees auditioning “make it” it into the performance as well as an extra…possibly the promoter’s grandchild…….
