This group was a lively energetic bunch.  We went through three large batches of tufa in no time flat. They did some usual stuff but pushed the limit on  other things as well.  Vetran Tufa-maker, Judy Lindsay, returned with her two daughters and two granddaughters.  The whole family had a great time making cool things for thier gardens.

 Suzanne had this great idea to make a hyperutfa rainbarrel.  She used two large plastic flower pots to mold the bottom and the top. This is the first rain barrel I've seen made of hypertufa. Suzzane will send some pics whren it is finished. She plans to mosaic a band around the middle. Awesome! Here we are drilling a hole for a real spout which fits onto her garden hose or spills into a watering can.
 Happy to be in the sweet shade!
