Happy Holidays to All Gardeners

Happy Holidays to All Gardeners

Maybe it was the lusty carolling heard at the village “Sing Choirs!” event this week because, just in time for a white Christmas, Chester has received a thick carpet of snow.  Despite forecasts of a green Christmas (not surprising since the temperature has been well above freezing most of December) today’s quiet snowfall has changed the landscape and the only people who may be dismayed are harried travelers and last-minute shoppers.

In this, the last posting for 2011, the Chester Garden Club wishes gardeners everywhere a happy and successful year of planning and planting, weeding and watering, pruning and puttering in 2012;  and, most of all, a new start to peace and understanding among all peoples.
