"All gardening is landscape painting."

William Kent, the English architect, landscape and furniture designer, wrote these timeless words in the 18th century.  They still apply today.

On May 26 & 27, The David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village will hold its annual Homegrown Plant Sale.  As always, there will be a huge selection of flowers and vegetables all grown by local gardeners.  Several varieties of annuals, perennials, herbs, berries, tomatoes and other vegetables will be available.  In addition, there will be a  hand-picked selection of gardening, cooking, and home improvement books at low prices as well as items available for silent auction or chance including a garden ornament from Battle Hill Forge, a planter created by local gardener Karen Lindquist, and a beehive tour with novice beekeeper, Jenny Law. 

There’s nothing like the conviviality of plant lovers as they gather to swap tips and enjoy the promises of the Spring season.  The sharing of homegrown plants is a wonderful tradition helping to enhance the beauty of our gardens and the health of our community.
