President's Letter

Last year at this time we were wishing for a few days without rain so we could get some Spring jobs done. Now we are wishing for some much-needed moisture. I expect that drought tolerant plants will be big sellers at the plant sale on April 7. As the days lengthen, I wish for more hours in a day or more days in a week. There is so much to be done in Spring but be warry. Each winter our risk of frost is from December 13 through March 13. With the weather patterns changing so much, there probably isn't a great deal to worry about but one never knows. On February 10, three other garden club members and I attended Passport to Spring at Alden Nursery. There were three interesting speakers and Jacquie is always so generous with fun door prizes and a 20% off coupon on all you purchased that day. Happy Gardening everyone.
