Helpers get to visit a fantastic hidden gem later in the afternoon; David Smith's gardens carved out of 2 acres of hillside. They are filled with Rhodo's in bloom, hostas and many more plants.

To get you in the mood here are some images from Liz's garden.

Garden Visits on Saturday May 9th

Garden Visits are scheduled for this weekend! On Saturday, May 9th from 10 am to 12 noon, three gardens south of town will be welcoming members. Liz, Rena, and Ken & Kathie will inspire you with their gardens. See April’s newsletter for locations.

Liz has talked about container gardens in the past. Here's a photo of an area of her garden taken last year around this time. She told us that she likes to move the containers around for different looks and conditions so we will see how she has rearranged for this year.
