THANK YOU! To all who participated in the Mount Laurel Garden Tour! It was so very enjoyable and the gardens were all so beautiful! I hope we can do it again next year. What a delightful day! THANKS!|
The Mount Laurel Garden Club planted a Kwansan cherry tree at the Mt. Laurel Library on Earth Day. It looks like it might get some blossoms even this year. Gloria read a poem about trees and we had some beautiful harmonica music. It was a nice arbor day celebration!|
If only the Primrose would stay looking this pretty all summer long! Alas, they are past their prime, but they will come back next year.
