Many, many thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to help out at our tables at the Capital District Garden and Flower Show. Our display was great and that is thanks to Cindi Jones who does a wonderful job every year to make sure our space is attractive and full of flowers. Our sincere gratitude, Cindi!

time to get pictures ready for the slideshow used at the auction. It’s very important that we let them know as soon as possible in the next couple of weeks how our babysitter plants are doing so they have time to get all the details coordinated. The success of the auction in great part depends on knowing which of the babysitter plants are coming back for sale to the members. If your babysitter has 6 or more fans, most likely it will be returned for division and sale. Because you have looked after your plant for several years, you will get a fan back to replant in your garden. In that way, mem-
bers get expensive daylilies in return for the attention and care they have taken to grow the babysitter plant. Frank and Sharon need to know the number of fans for all your babysitter plants whether or not they are ready to come back for sale.
Please, Please contact Frank Almquist at:
or Sharon Gallucci at:
before May 3rd when you are able to tell how many fans your babysitter plants are growing this year. Thanks so much!
I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose
I would always greet it in a garden.
