This should be a good talk--Discover the Extraordinary Secret Lives of Everyday Trees, with Nancy Ross Hugo. The talk will be at the Delaware Center for Horticulture in Trolley Square at 1810 N. Dupont Street in Wilmington, Delaware on Wednesday, February 6, from 7-8 PM.
The talk is the first in the Series of four winter lectures sponsored by the Delaware Grounds Management Association. The first talk is sponsored by Kerns Brothers Tree Service (who did a great job trimming my trees this fall, and gave me the DCH members' discount). A complete schedule of talks and other activities is available.
Nancy will share secrets she and photographer Robert Llewellyn discovered in a two year investigation of seeds, cones, catkins, resting buds, emerging leaves, and other small tree phenomena.
The picture above is the main lobby entrance to the Delaware Center for Horticulture, and to the right is the garden in the back of the building, which incorporates an old city parks maintenance building and recycled city lampposts. This is a great place to visit year round to get ideas for your garden. I would love to imagine my grounds could be like this, but not having a team of volunteers and staff to help, I only can dream!
