Work Day at the Garden April 14 @ 9:30 am

We will be getting the garden ship shape for the children's programs occuring in May.  The roses are bursting with buds.  A couple of monarch caterpillars have been busy on the milkweed.  We have a few replacement plants: Cooper Canyon Daisy, Cardinal, Milkweeds, purple verbena, passion vine, crepe myrtle, cocks cone and zinna seeds to plant and a couple of annual flower flats.  Weeding, dead heading to be done.  I have found the best dead head tool for flowers is the Fiskars Garden Multi-Snip with sheath as it is easy on the hand.  Hope to see you there, if not to enjoy the garden but to meet your gardening friends.
