Plant Sale Day at VanDusen Botanical Garden
Today was the annual plant sale at the VanDusen Botanical Garden. My wife attended with two friends, and said that it was a really great selection of plants — not flowers, but the green, leafy, twiggy things in your yard that go underappreciated this time of year when other things are blooming all showy-like. On plant sale say, admission is free. Now you’ll know for next year.
My pal Rob said that the gardens used to be a golf course, way back when. (The Web site backs him up, noting that the Shaughnessy Golf Club moved from there to a new location in 1960.) Now’s a good time of year to visit, so drop in after 10 a.m. and before dusk.
