Don't worry you all, spring is near and soon we'll be seeing the sunshine-lots of it. The above picture was taken last summer, and it reminds us all the sun is still here, and coming closer each day. Just look at how long the days have gotten already!
Today's post is a public service announcement for local residents, and it has everything to do with the sunshine and spring and gardening! The Montgomery County Master Gardeners are sponsoring a Beginner's Master Gardener Course next month.
What is a Beginner's Master Gardener Course you ask? Well it is an abbreviated version of some of the lessons you will learn in the full master gardener course. It is a fun course that gives you a taste of gardening without the pressure of having to do anything but listen and learn and have fun with fellow garden enthusiasts. Delona, hosta collector and gardener extraordinaire is in charge of this year's course, but you must sign up with the extension office. They can be reached at: (931)6485725. Ask for Karla.
The course begins March 4, 2009 and will end March 24, 2008. The classes will be taught at the Madison Street Methodist Church and the time of the classes are from 6:30-8:30 pm each Tuesday in March, with the 31st being held in reserve in case a make-up class is needed.
There will be a variety of instructors teaching a wide range of subjects. I will be teaching landscape design, and I plan to make it as fun as possible. Okay folks-we're talking landscape design here! How much more fun can that get? It's already near and dear to our hearts but a few principles and practical matters might be in store for you during my class. So come on out and meet some fellow gardeners for the Beginning Master Gardener Course scheduled to start in a few short weeks. The cost is $40 payable to Montgomery County Master Gardener Association.
