Two programs were each given twice during the afternoon. Kathleen Hull, MD gave a talk on medicinal plants and I gave a talk on the benefits of herbal teas. Both programs were well attended. My talk was in the lecture hall - which is an historically delightful room at the Medical Museum.
Judy Eudaly, harpist, provided live music throughout the day. She was in the loft of this room so it was a joy to spend time here while I prepared for my program to begin.
We were so glad that the light rain that began the day disappeared and the Plein Air Artists were in the garden painting.

I will again be at the Museum this coming Thursday (July 14) as I present a program about "Civil War Herbs". Program begins at 6:30 pm and you can find more information on their website. (I think you might have to register if you would like to attend.)
