Spring is Here!

A beautiful rhododendron is blooming in the front garden reminding me that edibles are just one important part of the garden.  There's a new source for native plants in town!  The California Native Plant Society, under the direction of Charlotte Torgovitsky, is opening a nursery in Novato.  Bonus:  discounts for school garden teachers!
