The Fall Plant Sale had a strong start today right at the 9 am opening. The mum holding area (seen above) saw some busy activity and we've seen steady traffic throughout the day. The Wisconsin Badger football game had an impact on attendance around mid-day and despite our calls to reschedule the game, that activity was in direct competition with our potential customers! We look forward to the sale tomorrow (also 9 am - 4 pm) and the Garden Art Auction at 1 pm which will feature the 25 awesome Adirondack chairs that have been displayed all summer out in the gardens. Needless to say we had a great volunteer turnout to help facilitate the sale and Larry and Bill O. took care of tidying the gardens before our three afternoon weddings. Below is just some of the action from the sale today.
