It’s been a whirlwind since our last blog a few weeks ago! We’ve been very busy preparing the garden for the annual Buds & Blooms Festival on Mother’s Day weekend. Spreading compost, creating pots, trimming perennials, tucking annuals in the ground for pops of color throughout the garden—and overall tidying and sprucing up the garden so it looked its best!
The weather was beautiful and sunny both days. About 350 visitors came through the garden. The tea room was very busy on Mother’s Day. Everyone commented on the lovely music of flautist Dan Mould and harpist Tori Norman. A huge thank-you to all of our wonderful volunteers and guest speakers! We couldn’t have done it without you!
Overall, PowellsWood shone and made many new friends. If you weren’t able to come on Mother’s Day weekend, we hope you’ll treat yourself to a visit to PowellsWood between now and October. Let us know in this space what you’d like to hear about and we’ll be happy to share our thoughts!This entry was posted on 05/29/2010 in Northwest Gardening Blog by PowellsWood
