Volunteer day this weekend!

March 5th is a volunteer day at Pennsylvania Garden from 10am to noon. I hope you can join us! There's lots to do and we need the help. I stole this quote from my dad's garden newsletter:
Our England is a garden, and such gardens are not made
By singing 'Oh how wonderful' and sitting in the shade,
While better men than we go out, and start their working lives
By grubbing weeds from garden paths with broken dinner knives.

Rudyard Kipling
So if that doesn't motivate you, what will? ;) We're going to be working on a  few projects this weekend, namely: Shearing lavender in the middle back bed. Potting up some lovely cacti. Shoring up the base of the steps with wood. Deadheading daffodils, weeding and mulching. Removing diseased cannas. You name it - there's stuff to do!
