Garden Club brings color to library

In cooperation with the Woodinville Public Library, members of the Woodinville Garden Club recently stocked the library's planting beds with fall- and winter-blooming plants.
   Twice a year Woodinville Garden Club's members bring color to several areas near the entrance to the library. Fall and winter plants such as kale, mums, winter pansies and dusty miller add brightness to gray days.
   Later in the year, garden club members set early blooming spring blubs followed by plantings of colorful summer annuals.
   "It's a joy to garden at the library," says Chris Bigham, Woodinville Garden Club Civic Chairman.
   "Library patrons not only comment about how much they appreciate what we are doing, they even offer to help us dig. We receive immediate, positive feedback for our efforts."
   Chris points out that children as well as adults use the library.
   "We hope that children will develop a love of plants as well as a love of books," she continues. "The library is a fine place for club members to combine both the passion for reading and the love of plants."
