Around Town….

Bernie H is looking for an identification on this plant – it comes up like corn and has thick waxy leaves.  If you know, give us a shout.

 

And Gayle M. is showing off her Mountain Laurel ~ “This is what a cool wet Spring does for Mountain Laurel. Best bloom I have ever seen on this 30 year old plant.”

And Beverly C. reports that “They’re Growing!”


Montgomery Bell Jr. Ranger Camp for Special Needs

Many thanks to Linda Hartmann for once again leading a successful Seed Starting Program, this time for Special Needs Children at Montgomery Bell State Park.

Gayle Mitchell and Linda Al-Sangar were on hand as assistants.

The children learned how seeds are started and had a great time starting their own using the ice cream cone method to take home with them.  Everyone got a chance to look at different seeds and a sprouted lima bean which was found to be not only “Eww”, but also “Yucky”.  What a great bunch of kids!

Rosemary Chamberlain followed up with a talk and demonstration on Bluebirds.
