Don't you just love it when folks get together to talk about plants, maybe buy a few to take home and lovingly put into the ground? And maybe buy a piece of jewelry for their significant other, or an egg roll for their significant self?
We love it too. And we do it every April.
Ijams 15th annual Spring Native Plant Sale was held last week. Eight local nurseries selling wildflowers, herbs, forbes, shrubs and trees, plus crafts folks with pottery, jewelry, birdhouses, metal works and decorations got together for a beautiful outdoor fair in the plaza. Proceeds benefited Ijams' natural areas and trails.
A special thank you to all who attended and if one photo is worth a thousand words, then here are several thousand allegorical words.
