Isn’t it a beautiful time of year? The flowers are blooming and gardens are growing. The Marianna Black Library started a Sharing Garden several years ago. Patrons donated flowers and volunteers landscaped the area. A sheltered gazebo was built with benches underneath that everyone enjoys. Later a picnic table and water fountain was added.
Since then we have had numerous groups of volunteers help with the upkeep of the garden areas. Just this week we had a very excited school group of fifth graders come and donate their services to the “library garden”. What a lot of weeds they pulled!
Each student chose a plant to take home.
