What a difference a day makes!

March 31, 2017

The sun was shining, and although the temperatures were pretty similar to yesterday as we started off, the wind was not as intense but the sunlight made it feel warmer. Our committee met early and toured several more gardens in Ft. Smith and then went to two in Van Buren. Another diverse mix of large and small, and some unique gardens.

We saw fairy gardens , rose gardens,  and historic gardens.  We toured the second oldest building in Arkansas, the Drennen Scott home. The gardens are a Master Gardener project and the home has much historic interest.

We had a very productive morning. After noon, we headed back towards LR.  We stopped in at some nurseries along the way home to check out what they had and to get plants for a workshop on Sunday. First stop was a new nursery in Lamar, BP Nursery & Landscape owned by a father/son duo.  It is just getting started but so much promise and such enthusiasm from the young owner.   Then we stopped at a nursery that has been in business for 40 years in Russellville, Taylor’s.  I was pleased to see a lovely Ark. Diamond Display as you walked in.  Last but not least was Freyaldehoven’s in Conway. They were doing a brisk business.

Our car was loaded up when we headed home, albeit a bit later than expected.  A very full two days but quite productive!
