    Thank you so much for this annual event. We brought friends and first time visitors last week end and are bringing family first timers later today. Your gardens, people and views are the best in Nevada County.

    The tulip tour yesterday was pure delight. We spent a most refreshing, enjoyable time. The energy and love at the Crystal Hermitage, also Expanding Light where we had lunch, were palpable. Yes, everyone there was very welcoming. And nature there sings!

    Thank you so much for your welcoming spirit and splendor of the garden tour. We loved it so much, we would like to return tomorrow and share the beauty with my mother, Dolores. I truly felt in Heaven today because I happened upon the Crystal Hermitage Garden.

    Again, many thanks.
