The End is Near - Winter That Is
Happy whatever season we're in, everyone. This winter has certainly seemed long and especially cold for our neck of the woods. Evidence of winter's wrath is showing up on some plants like this gardenia. It will likely recover with time, some selective pruning, and a little TLC.
The past week or so has been welcome relief from the harsh cold and has slowly started the garden juices flowing. Mostly I've been doing chores like cleaning up, spreading mulch and thinking about what I want to do during the upcoming gardening season. I've got pretty big ideas and an actual design plan for my backyard. Executing the plan will be another matter.
Anyway, activities sponsored by Forsyth County Extension and Extension the Master Gardener program are starting up now. Here is a sampling of a few upcoming events:
- The Spring Home & Garden Library Series begins March 1st. See the entire schedule here.
- Wednesday, March 2, 2011, 11:30 AM Tangelewood Arboretum in the office/classroom of the Arboretum at Tanglewood, Horticulturist & Garden Writer David Bare will present a one hour lecture on Cottage Gardens at Reynolda.
