SPRING BULB GARDENS

Details Doug Hackbarth - Broadview Florist & Greenhouses

With March temperatures hovering around 22-38 degrees, we all welcome any sign of spring. One of my favorite signs is a mixed garden pot of spring flowering bulbs.

Mixed gardens can be placed around the house at any stage of growth and you get to watch them grow and develop into bloom.

HOME COUNTRY: MRS. RICHARDSON

Details

Mrs. Richardson doesn't often go to the city, but Ardis saw the ad in the big daily paper for the singles group and which church they used for meetings. Mrs. Richardson got all dolled up, and she didn't forget to take the "magic" fishing fly Marvin Pincus tied for her.
