"The seasons' difference, as the icy fang
And churlish chiding of the winter’s wind,
Which, when it bites and blows upon my body,
Even till I shrink with cold, I smile and say,
This is no flattery."
As You Like It
Yes, the rainy, wintry weather still grips our region. Many of us eagerly await the first harbingers of spring. Weeks of icy, drizzly weather make us long for those first glorious blooms of spring to appear. When they do, we have a lineup of great events to appease your spring fever.
I’m proud to announce that Mercer Botanic Gardens East Side Gardens will open Saturday, March 17 for normal business hours.
Yes, Mercer's East Side will be open! The grand reopening coincides with The Mercer Society’s annual March Mart Plant Sale. I hope you will take the time to attend this event and also visit The Mercer Society’s new location in Old Town Spring. They sell plants featured at Mercer as well as garden items and decorations in support for Precinct 4’s Mercer Botanic Gardens. I greatly appreciate all the work they do. Read more below to find out about all the other activities we have in store for you this spring.
As a reminder, you can access past issues of
