Meetings and Garvan

April 3, 2017

This morning we had an executive meeting for the state MG conference that took up most of the morning. There are only two weeks left to register for the state conference, and space is available since we have space for more people than in the past.  This is going to be a fantastic conference, so come join us!

I had to leave to get to Garvan Gardens to tape our monthly TV spots. We have decided to shoot in the afternoon to avoid equipment sounds and we can do so until it gets too hot to wait until the afternoon. Today it turned out to be a good idea, to allow time for the morning mist to leave. It was still pleasant and the sun was shining as we taped.  The tulips are done and so are many of the azaleas, but there are still plenty of plants in bloom and many more coming on.  One of the hot spots today was the Perry Wildflower Overlook.   The perennials planted last year are really coming along nicely.  The Gaillardia were blooming nicely and will continue to do so for months.   Other early blooms included scabiosa (pincushion flower) , ice plant,    and a double coreopsis.   But the most stunning plant today was the fringe tree. The showstopper was in the parking lot, but there were several others around the garden in full bloom as well.   Gorgeous!

The gardens are pretty in every season, and it was a delightful day to walk the gardens, and it was a pretty day for a drive.

Tomorrow is Planting Your Bloomers in Wynne.  Hope to see you there.
