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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
