Hi Carlene!  I missed the Birchwood Garden Club meeting this week!

I've just reposted the new club meeting date for April on the events page.

I really enjoyed meeting you at the Jan seed-swap and look forward to seeing you again!  Call if you ever want to carpool to a bird-watching event or Skagit event.
