What a Spectacular Spring It Has Been
After what seemed months of cold, wet, snowy weather spring arrived. And what a spring we had. The poppies were amazing. The irises - gorgeous. And the roses fantastic.
Pink Double Ruffle Poppies - Iris - Roses
Many Clark Garden visitors have been impressed with the Peggy Martin Rose growing along the arbor at the Rose Pavilion. When we explain that those roses were planted from a one gallon container and are in their third year there is total disbelief.
Not only is the Peggy Martin beautiful, it has a great story. The rose survived Hurricane Katrina. Dr. William Welch, our featured speaker at our Spring Festival, shared the story. I hope you have a chance to take time to read Dr. Welch's article the Early History of the Peggy Martin
. The history makes the rose even more beautiful.

...to receive a fruit orchard through Communities Take Root.
Clark Gardens is the perfect "outdoor classroom." This spring over 2,000 students have come to the garden to explore butterfly gardening, study the tree system, plant herb gardens and observe our abundant wildlife, from turtles, swans, frogs, lizards and even snakes.
Clark Gardens has applied for a grant offered by Dreyer's Fruit Bars and the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. If awarded the grant would provide an orchard to use as a teaching tool. Vote for Clark Gardens. You may vote daily. Your vote will provide our community with a valuable teaching tool.
