Smithsonian Interns in Fern Valley

Erin Clark brought a cheerful group of interns to tour a few of the Gardens today. With Joan off collecting, I was elected for the walk through Fern Valley. The day was perfect and FV was in autumnal glory. We stopped to talk to Nate and see how the wall was coming. If you click on the picture there are glimpses of the wall barely visible. It's about 2/3 done and I like it for its extreme relief; some of the stones are over 4" thick. Some already have lichens growing on them. It ought to be done Friday or next Monday.
