Liz, thank you for reading and for commenting. Always a pleasure to hear from you.

Doug, Melody and I live about 10 miles apart, and she was one of my students a "few" years ago. As a matter of fact, she is the reason I am in DG. Nice to have students that are now my good friends.

Thanks for reading the article and for the comment. Will be fun to meet you in September.

Hello Marie,
I would love to have a chat with Aunt Bett as well, sadly enough she died in the 70's at 80+ years old. The more I write about her, the more I wish she was around to talk with. I have many questions now that I never asked then.

Eyes, so nice to hear from you. I like to think that she would fit right into this world today, with all her wit and wisdom. She truly was special.

Thanks to you both for reading and for commenting.
Sharon

Great story as usual. Aunt Bett knew her business and I'd trust her doctorin' knowledge completely. I mean, it is the root of modern medicine (no pun intended). Joe Pye was probably what we call a placebo nowadays.

Hi Twinkie, nice to hear from you again.
I think you are probably right about the placebo, but I doubt if it was even a word in those days.
thanks for writing.

Really liked your story, Sharon. I look forward to knowing some of my students later in life- that's so neat about you and Melody.

I am sure it will happen for you, Suzanne...love of art makes it happen. Melody and I happen to love plants as well, so that is another connection.
Thanks for reading the article.

Perhaps in writing you are having "conversations" with Aunt Bett, Sharon.

Interesting that watching JP grow was equated with doing nothing, since it seems it grew so fast,you could really see it grow, so never were they doing nothing. Just watching something grow is something, eh?

Nice story.I have some Joe Pye seeds - I don't know that I've seen it here.

I think you are right, 4paws, it seems she takes over my thoughts/memories at times. And you are right about watching Joe Pye grow, but of course I never took the time to slow down and "watch".

Thank you for taking the time to read this article. And I am glad you understand Aunt Bett, and me, so well.
