    Thanks, Cynthia. It's always nice to see what the Master Gardeners are doing in other communities. This garden looks beautifully tended and versatile so you must have a number of volunteers. Thanks for sharing.

    Would that all public (and private) gardens were as well-labeled as this one! Thanks for sharing the information.about this lovely garden.

    Will you Look at that Soil???!!!! Used to live in Appalachia in a past life and your views make me homesick. Sigh... But, life and time marches on. Your capture of the Apiary/Orchard in spring is inspiring to us, as our hive is also in our very young orchard, but our trees have years to go before they have that kind of stature and show! (And, hopefully sweet harvest!) And, I'll bet sitting in the Gazebo Swing is magical with all the hummers flitting around and about the Crocosmias!!
    And, there's just something about teaching gardens which is also magical! Perhaps it's the gathering of so many souls to a common interest and purpose. Kinda makes these places "Hallowed Grounds!" Places like this one certainly do Reconnect and Refresh our so many, many ways!!

    This is such a beautiful part of NC and I'm sure all the gardens that are on the tour will be drool worthy. The Giving garden looks like a wonderful endeavor and it's so nice that it is well supported in the area.
