February is here and spring is just around the corner and our fall planted bulbs are coming up and will be blooming soon.
We are having exceptionally warm weather this week and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Our Planting Party on January 24 got off to a great start with a large member attendance to help with the task. Bill Barrons and Tom Davids had The Color Spot set up for us and we hit the ground running.
The seed selection contained both vegetables and annuals and in no time at all we had planted all the seeds and transplanted annuals that had been grown at The Color Spot to larger containers.
Our Plant Sale will be held on Sunday, April 29 and we are expecting a good turnout with many repeat customers.
We have two holidays this month, Valentine’s Day, February 14 and Presidents’ Day celebrating birthdays of past presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln on February 19.
Our speaker for our February 16 meeting is Lenka Glassner and she will be demonstrating Egg Decorating Moravian Style. This will be a very interesting presentation and just in time for Easter.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Cupid is the most famous Valentine symbol, who is known as a mischievous, winged child whose arrows signify desires and emotions of love. Cupid aims those arrows at Gods and humans, causing them to fall deeply in love. In ancient Greece he was known as Eros, the young son of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. To the Romans he was Cupid and his mother was Venus.
