  8. After my adventures as a R&R drummer in the 60's I changed direction and got a job at Cornelius Nursery around 1971. I loved it, and it became one of my various occupations over the years. The work environment was wonderful-a riot of color and heavenly scents, the cool spray of constant watering, which intensified the fragrances of marigolds, phlox, jasmine and roses. Customers all seemed to be in a good mood there, so I ended up making the rounds of numerous nurseries in the next three years. But I forget their names, except for Gardenland on Westheimer, which was the last place I worke

  18. I don't know how long the South Texas College of Law has had a rooftop garden, but (from the street) I think it looks good. This got me to wondering how many other rooftop gardens exist in Houston? Not just a few chaise lounges and some wisteria vines, but serious rooftop gardens that building occupants can actually enjoy. Studies show that rooftop gardens help moderate building temperatures, create habitats for birds and insects, and reduce the amount of water runoff. Of course it goes without saying that they can provide great aesthetic satisfaction as well!
