Thank you, thank you, thank you to Phyllis Henley, Frank Sinning, Angela Regan, Cecilia Kessler, Kathy Gilmore, Rod Gilmore, Kathy Hodnett, Lucinda Reynolds, Ann Carriere, Rose Matta, Vicki Webb, and Pat Mueske, who joined Ceil and I at the gardens last Thursday, A huge Thank You to Vernita Manship who had spent numerous hours at the garden weeding prior to Thursday in order to help us get caught up. With her efforts and a super turn out we were able to finish weeding the main bed and get it partially mulched. It is looking wonderful!!!We also had the pleasure of Rangers Scott Noble and Randy Coy from the Arkansas Forestry Commission present information on Tree Identification. Scott provided an overview of the newly updated Trees of Arkansas book and how to use the key in the book for tree identification. We then walked one of the trails and used the key as well as Scott providing a wealth of other information. We will have a 2nd session in the fall to discuss tree fall colors. Date and time will be noticed well in advance so you can mark your calendars to attendWe will have an additional enhancement say this coming Wednesday, April 29th starting at 8:30. This xtra workday should get us caught up and back on schedule. :)Ceil and I want to once again thank everyone for responding to last weeks workday and all of their hardwork.
See you soon
