A FOUNTAIN OF HER OWN

Re: "A Little Water Music," June, page 78. Here's a snapshot [shown at right] of my new fountain. As you can see, I used a different kind of pot than the strawberry pot in your photo.

TO PASCO. TO PASCO

Re: "To Market, to Market," August, page 37. The TriCities area of Washington deserves a mention. Pasco's farmers' market is one of the largest, oldest open-air markets in the Northwest, with a huge variety of plants, fruits, vegetables, and crafts. It is open from May to November, on Saturdays and Wednesday mornings.

The restaurant is Cafe del Rio (400 S. Carson St.). The fish tacos are grilled mahimahi (marinated in Dos Equis and spices) and served with garlic slaw and avocado-tomato salsa.

We cannot thank them enough! My husband drools over the car adverts, as well as the travel stories, while I look forward to the gardening stories.
