What a weekend! My poppies are blooming (and are almost as tall as I am!), my peonies are blooming, my false-blue indigo is blooming -- it feels like it's the middle of summer. I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the sunshine.
This email is going to be a smorgasbord of different things but I think it will be easier than sending multiple emails.
1. A HUGE thank-you to our members who took care of the downtown, Town Hall and Come-Unity center planters. They look wonderful. I had stopped at the Come-Unity Center on Friday and they were so thrilled and happy with the planters.
With the planters, we need volunteers to water. This is especially important if we continue to have such warm days and lack of rain. For our new members, we do have water available downtown but you will need to bring containers to use to water. Even if you can do one week, that would be appreciated.

2. The Lettering Lounge put together two different designs for our Welcome to Williamson signs. Due to time, we are not going to do the contest for this raised bed although we may do it for our next raised bed. Please take a look at the signs and we will discuss it further at our meeting.
4. Reminder - If you are free on Thursdays, the WPHS gardeners will be working on the gardens. Please join them and bring your tools.
