Some fun news: this weekend, the Fullerton Arboretum will be featuring both plants AND garden books for sale!
According to their website:
"Gardening book lovers can browse to their heart’s content during the used book sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, in the pavilion. Proceeds will benefit the addition of new research books for the facilities library.
Then from the pages of many of the books on sale,
visitors can check out the more than 130 different varieties of salvias,
also know as sages and members of the mint family, that are available
for sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, and Sunday, Sept. 9. Sales items were propagated and grown on site."
It appears that they also have all sorts of great workshops planned this month as well.
The Fullerton Arboretum is one of those great 'somewhat hidden treasures' of Orange County, take some time and check it out.
And be sure to stop by Johnnye Merles' on your way home! :)
