IT’S ABOUT TIME SPRING GOT HERE!!!! We’ve been waiting for what feels like forever! And those of us who are gardening enthusiasts have been sulking, trowels in hand, waiting for an opportunity to bring life and color back to our little garden plots. Now that planting season seems to finally be upon us, what better time to explore a little history of gardens and their importance?
On Sunday, April 21, 2013, from 2:15 to 4:00 PM, at the Crane-Phillips House Museum at 124 North Union Avenue in Cranford, the Cranford Historical Society will present “From 19th Century Farm to Victorian Cottage Garden.” It’s a perfect way for gardeners and home owners to get some ideas, simply by stopping by the museum to see how gardens looked long ago. Through her PowerPoint presentation, Trustee Christine Glazer will share a fascinating PowerPoint presentation, highlighting the ways gardens have evolved over the years. The presentation will show how gardens once served much more of a purpose than just beauty and hobby. At the completion of the program, visitors can take a tour of the Crane-Phillips House gardens to see it in bloom. While admission is free (LOVE that word . . . . . FREE!), reservations ARE required, so please call 908-276-0082 , or email firstname.lastname@example.org.. This is just one of the many ways the Cranford Historical Society has been dedicated to the perpetuation of Cranford’s history by continuing to collect and document the town’s past as we enter the 21st century.
Gentleman . . . (and ladies) . . . . start your gardens!!!!!!
