Dark and Drizzly

IMG_5304

Today consisted mostly of drizzle with a couple periods of no rain averaged out with heavier rainfall.  It was a great day to accomplish indoor work though and we had no shortage of activities both inside the Horticulture Center and out in the yard.  With our Spring Plant Sale Clearance ending yesterday, we were sorting and moving plants based on their final use/destination and both the yard and the Horticulture Center had a nice spring cleaning with superb organizational skills from our staff and volunteers.  Flowers continue unabated out in the gardens like the ‘Sunflower’ paw paw (Asimina triloba) seen above.  Larry H., Big John, Cindy and I worked on a wide range of projects with the help and contributions from Gary, Bev D., Bobby K.,  Alan M., Maury, Dr. Gredler, Bill O. and many others.  Our Garden Development & Maintenance Committee met as well which also included Maury, Dick P., Gary, Big John, Larry H. and Hal R.  It was a very productive day and the rain was not unwelcome at all!  This blog is a “hodge podge” of images from both today and yesterday.
