Featured Project: Putting the Bridge to Bed for the Winter
This has been an eventful year at the Purple People Bridge! Our contest theme, Beauty and the Eats, guided our plantings as well. Next year is the Tenth Year for the contest and our theme will be: Sports of All Sorts...to celebrate all the sports teams in our area as well as the All Star baseball game coming to Cincy in July 2015.
We need to say a special thank you to Bill Mischler, Kathy Shepherd and Joan Kruer, Jim and Judy Budnik, and Pam & Richard Hirte who all pitched in to be our weekly 'spies' to keep all of our own garden areas ship shape this year. Well done, all!
Our final day at the Bridge will be Friday, November 7 starting at 10:00 AM. We will be clearing out all the rest of the pots and garden areas (the contest groups will have their pots cleared out by then.) and putting the Bridge gardens to bed for the winter. If a lot of you can come help out, we can get this done before lunch. To note: we have even more cannas to pull out this year, including some newer varieties. We'll keep some aside and babysit them until next year. But there will be a LOT available for anyone who'd like to overwinter them and use them at home next year. We also always have other plants to thin out or pass along to anyone who wants them, too.
PLEASE PUT THIS ON YOUR CALENDAR AND COME HELP PUT THE BRIDGE TO BED!
Thanks and happy holidays from the GCMGA Purple People Bridge Landscape Planning Team
