Riordan Mansion Garden
I think we timed it right. After this very cold spell we should have a nice day on Saturday to "winterize" the gardens. I believe most plants have now frozen so we can cut them back. We will plan to work from the visitor center north taking down what we can. I did get a free rose that we can put in the courtyard area and mulch real well. If you have pruners or other tools that would be helpful bring them, but I do have tools to share. Otherwise bring your water and I will have snacks. We will start at 10am and go to around noon. Please sign in at the visitor's center. Again, if you are unable to make it I look forward to seeing you next year and want to thank you for all your hard work this year.
We have definitely enhanced the mansion with our gardens.
Nov. 17th for putting the garden to bed.
The Deaver mounting sessions will resume in September. We will meet bimonthly on the first and third Thursdays from 1:30-3:30pm in the
herbarium located in room 313 in the Biological Sciences Building (#21) on South Beaver Street
No experience necessary, newcomers are always welcome.
The dates for November: November 1 and 15; for December: December 6 and 20.
