There is no other place quite as nice as our "Crooked Garden".
Jim, thank you for all you're hard work in making the butterfly garden
a wonderful place to visit, relax, and reflect.
With our best wishes,
Eva and Jerry Karliner

Dear Jim, Judy, and volunteers;
The Crooked Garden is very special to me. Our friends placed a bench in my husbands memory.
I love the location, and when the Hackberry tree matures, it will give shade, and I know he would love that!
Keep up the good work.

The following letter is a "School Report" written by a 9 year old 5th grader.
When Ingrid Schwartz visits her grandparents, Julie and Don Schwartz, in Pelican Preserve,
The Crooked Garden is a highlight of her visit.
Needless to say, Ingrid received an "A" on her "Report!
By the way, the comment at the end of the report was written by her teacher.

Dear Jim [Crooked Garden Curator]
"Just a note to tell you how much we all enjoyed our visit to the Crooked Garden last week [Nov. 12, 2008].
The morning far exceeded our expectations. The three of you [Robert Cranor, Judy Weil, and Jim Price]
were most informed and gracious.
The work you have put in there is quite obvious. I think you should all feel it's been very worth while.....
I have sown the seeds that you shared with us, and am looking forward to butterflies of my own.
Many, many thanks."

Sincerely,
Peggy Rutledge
THE BROOKS GARDEN CLUB

Dear Crooked Garden Curator,
Thought that you would like to see the nice things that Bob Pyle had to say about our Crooked Garden. We agree!
Herb & June Tietzer

[excerpts from a recent personal letter]
"...And I want to let you know that I visited the Crooked Garden at Pelican Preserve...I spent much of the day there, in the kind and attentive company of Terry [Lollio], Robert [Cranor], and Jim Price, the curator. I logged twelve species of butterflies, one of them new for me. It is one of the finest and loveliest butterfly gardens that I have ever visited. That was a great trip, and again I am thankful.
With all warm wishes,"

Bob Pyle

Dear Crooked Garden Curator,
I was talking to Patti's mom yesterday, and knowing that she loves 
butterflies, I told her to check out your web site in advance of their 
arrival this May, and this was her testimonial.  I thought that you 
might enjoy it.
[Pelican Preserve residents, Patti & Bill Van der have]
"Both Dad and I watched the butterfly garden website.  Quite fabulous; 
in fact I had to pass the website on to most
of my friends and relatives.  Just couldn't keep the butterflies to 
myself." 

Thanks. 
Love and hugs, MOM
