Good Morning,

I had a truly transcendent experience yesterday as I walked in the beautiful weather to the Discovery Garden and worked in the Garden. I listened to Il Divo on my iPod while walking and got goose bumps! It looks like the weather will be beautiful the next few days. Please take advantage of it and enjoy nature. Read more about the health benefits of gardening here.

Good Morning,

Another day of gloomy weather. I think I've forgotten what the sun looks like!

Kudos to Sweeny for providing Monarch Butterfly habitats. See www.nrpa.org/parks4monarks for more information.

I need a volunteer to help me finish the drainage project at the Discovery Garden in First Capitol Park. Please email me if you are willing to help.

Good Morning,

I have fixed some of the video links on our web site, columbiablooms.org, relating to America in Bloom. I utilized Vimeo. Their free accounts have a weekly upload limit. I will fix the rest of the video links in a week.

The forecast is for a nice, warm day. Please take advantage of it and get outside. Stop by our little downtown and see the window boxes we've replanted. First Capitol Park is also a great place to be outside.

Good Morning,

We will resume replanting our downtown project today at 3 PM and tomorrow at 8 AM. Please join us. It will be a lot of fun and a wonderful way to enjoy the weather.

I recently discovered this site that lists plants that should grow well in our area. Please take a look.

Our next meeting is this Wednesday at 10:30 at the library. I will be showing the America in Bloom video about Urban Forestry. We will work on the breakfast and the Garden Show projects among other things.

I figured out how to import Excel spreadsheets to our web site, columbiablooms.org. Click Abount then Financials. If you find an error please email me.

Good Morning,

The hosting service for our web site upgraded yesterday and our site is down as a result. I'm working with their support people to fix the problem. Once it is fixed the automated reminder emails for watering will work and you will see that I have cleaned up the long list of projects. I combined all the America in Bloom Judges' Report into one project with several tasks.

Good Morning,.

We had a productive Committee Meeting yesterday. The minutes have been posted to the home page of our web site, columbiablooms.org. If you have corrections or comments about the minutes please email me.

Kudos to Barta's for removing algae on their building facade. More improvements are to come. Kudos also to the Episcopal Church for similar activities.

As you will note from the meeting minutes our Spring Garden Show is scheduled for March 5 to collaborate with the Chamber's City-Wide Garage Sale.
