IMPORTANT: If by a rare circumstance or illness, that I or Bob or our other leaders are ever unable to attend one of our Meetups, the group should go on without us at the designated time! I would ask our "regulars" to lead the group on those rare occassions...
***THANK YOU ALL, I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE MEETUP!!!***
~* BLOOMING AT THE GARDEN... will be Hundreds of thousands of bulbs, including sunny daffodils, electric blue Siberian squill, and early tulips blooming in the Bulb Garden and other gardens at CBG!
Trees and shrubs putting on a brief but brilliant show include magnificent magnolias, pink and white flowering cherries of all sorts and redbuds. As cheery forsythias fade, snowy white serviceberries put on a show. A beautiful spot to visit is the Japanese Garden, edged with graceful chartreuse weeping willows and spotted with white and pink magnolias and Nanking cherries. Evening Island is covered with daffodils, grape hyacinths and bishop’s cap. Hot spots for pansies and other colorful annuals include the Heritage Garden, Sensory Garden and Enabling Garden. Sounds Perfect after a long cold winter!!!
