DUNNVILLE—Thanks to recent restrictions being lifted, the Dunnville Horticultural Society (DHS) has been given the green light by Haldimand County to plant the community flower beds this month!
DHS is excited to bring back the colour and beauty to our town, especially during these difficult days. Since we will be working within some limitations still with respect to the number of people working in each garden and maintaining distancing, this year our planting will take place over three days instead of our usual one day: Monday, May 25, 2020; Tuesday, May 26; and Wednesday, May 27 have been earmarked as our planting days.
No doubt many of you are itching to get out and get active with your family in a different environment.
If you are interested in assisting with the gardens this year, we are always in need of help!
If you are interested, contact myself, Deb Zynomirski, at 905-774-8453 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
On another note, we have had to cancel our May and June Program nights and our June Garden Tour at the home of Beth Powell and Ken Sherwood. We are hopeful that by September, restrictions will continue to ease and perhaps we can meet up at our September Program Night on September 17.
No doubt many of you who are gardeners have been outside cleaning up the yard and your garden beds. What a relief to hear that garden centres are now permitted to open so that we can once again fill our gardening desires with new plants and flowers. They will surely brighten not only our own lives, but those of all who pass by our homes.
Spring is much colder this year than I can remember it being in a long time.
As these cold and dreary days wear on, keep your perspective.
All this will one day be behind us, and we will enjoy the warmth and cheer of sunshine, family, and friends. Until then, take care of each other, stay connected, and get those green thumbs ready!
