t has been a long and very trying March, April and May for all, but we look forward to a great many things in June. Free Saturday Yoga on the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History’s lawn.
Trenda Carter Leavitt from Beech Grove Design Landscape Architecture Company has worked closely with the City and the Museum throughout this year and we finally have many blueprints on the table for Education Demonstration gardens. After presenting her plans to the DMFAH Board of Directors we will open these drawings up to the public for viewing. The Museum plans to take many of its programming projects outside!!!
The Garden Club of Danville, will be weeding and sprucing up the Rose garden in early June for an aroma filled experience for all. If you have never stood dead center in the Perkinson Rose garden during a warm June day you have not experienced a very-very ancient smell. Garden cultivation of roses began some 5,000 years ago in China. During the Roman period, roses were grown extensively in the Middle East. They were used as confetti at celebrations, for medicinal purposes, and as a source of perfume.
