Ocala Master Gardener Show this weekend plus Markets !

Greetings all, and what gorgeous weather we are having ! Looks like Mother Nature is going to give us calmer winds and gorgeous sunshine this weekend.

Our friend, GINGER, will be running our booth at St. Pete Sat. Morning Market and Sunday Morning Market at Tarpon Springs this weekend. Look for her, along with Mitch's grandson, Kevin, as they will have a stunning display of colorful Spring and Summer perennials.

On Friday, Mitch and I take off up to Ocala, for their Spring Master Gardener Show, one of our favorites. The people of Ocala are just so welcoming and come out in great numbers to support all of us hard working plant vendors.

Next weekend, we head to Leu Gardens in Orlando, for their Spring Plant Fest. The St. Pete Market will be temporarily moved to Central Ave. and 2nd street, due to the Car race set up. Since they have limited room, we have opted out of doing market that day and will concentrate on the Leu Show. If you have never been to Leu, it's a great one-day road trip, with free admission, over 100 vendors, and one of the best Botanical Gardens in the state.

The following weekend (March 24/25), the St. Pete Market is closed for the Car Race, and we will be at Greenfest! in Tampa -- another peaceful, relaxing venue right on the water in downtown Tampa.

Since we are in the midst of one show right after another rocketing us along in March,stay tuned for recaps on our Shows and markets and our upcoming schedule going into April.

Keep a hat on to keep the Oak Pollen out of your face and Happy Gardening!
