Tomorrow is the big day!  I’m preparing for a day-long visit to Hartwick College, as a Foreman Performing and Creative Arts Grant Program recipient.  Working with Professor Fauth, I’ll be touring the campus with the Beautification Committee to offer maintenance advice; leading a landscape design workshop and a planting workshop at the main entrance into campus.

Sun-lovers: spring-flowering: blue forget-me-nots, white candy tuft, white rock cress, shrub: boxwood; summer-flowering: Rose campion, peony, thyme, sun-drops, German iris, Clematis tangutica (July-Aug.); annual in sunken pots: "Shock Wave Rose Petunia."

Shade-Lovers: spring-flowering: Vinca minor, lily of the valley and Narcissus poeticus, shrub: Kerria; summer-flowering: Queen Anne's lace, harebell, annual in sunken pots: "Accent Rose Impatiens."
