Spring Blooms

Pretty Spring Flowers

The museum has a number of beds. There is the one under the greenhouse I posted a picture of in the previous entry. I recall a very nice crop of corn in there last year. There are also a number of beds in the Heritage Garden. Some of them have vegetables and some flowers.

This picture shows the museum looking past one of the two raised beds which bracket the driveway entering the museum grounds.

Of course my little ancient digital camera doesn’t do justice to the pretty flowers. There are different flowers in bloom through the seasons. I know there will be many plants in bloom for Victoria Day.

Victoria Day also marks the beginning of Summer Hours at the museum. From Victoria Day (May 21) to Labour Day (September 3) the Museum is open for Summer hours:

  • Summer Hours: 10am – 5pm (Victoria Day – Labour Day)

What's Up?

What’s up in the Garden? Well I can tell you the peas seem to be doing quite well. They’re not in the garden but in the small greenhouse on the south side of Charlie’s Shed at the Southwest corner of the museum near the Venosta. They looked to be over a foot tall already. Looking around at the Heritage Garden at the other corner of the museum grounds the onion sets and rhubarb looked to be doing excellently as well. I’ll have some more pictures coming in future instalments.

The gardening at the is mostly done by volunteers and we are always looking for help with the gardening and landscaping chores! Give a call at the museum if you want to help or even if you want to learn a little I am sure someone can show you the ropes. (Or gardening twine. 😉 )

GARDENING VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Join us on Saturday, May 5 at 3:00pm here at the Museum to start our season of gardening. We’ll be discussing just what needs to be done, how to do it and would appreciate any ideas or suggestions you may have. Bring your gloves and gardening tools (we have some) and spend an hour or so of WEEDING, SEEDING and getting ready for the planting season. If you can’t make it on Saturday and still want to help in the garden just call or email us.
