By Michael Crawford, Mill Creek Garden Club President.
It’s been a cold cold winter, but Spring is just around the corner! Longer, warmer days, daffodils blooming, tulips on the way. The Mill Creek Garden Club is anxious to get out in our gardens. To help us calm our need for spring, the Garden Club has lined up a great speaker and an excursion!
Our February 14 speaker is Susie Egan. She will be sharing her passion for Spring Ephemerals. What are Spring Ephemerals you ask: woodland wildflowers that appear above ground in early spring, flower, fruit, and die in a short two-month period.
Susie and her husband are the owners of Cottage Lake Gardens. It includes a two-acre private botanical garden that hosts dozens of garden tours each year including the popular Trillium Tea, Talk & Tours.
Spring Fever will be in full force during our February 22nd bus trip to The Northwest Flower and Garden Show.
The theme of this year’s show is “Taste of Spring” to quote the show promotions, “there will be more eye-popping color than ever!”
