Hello Gardeners!I hope you are enjoying all the seed catalogs in your mail box. Looking through all the color photos of vegetables and flowers inspires me during these cold, cloudy days of winter. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the snow and activities like cross-country skiing and snow shoeing, but I do like dreaming of warm weather too.
Another event which I always find wonderful is the Design With Nature Conference. The speakers are great and the conference fee includes lunch and snacks. Consider becoming a Wild Ones member and receive a discount to the conference.
