A Visit to The Enchanted Olive
The Enchanted Olive was delightful! So many olive oil and vinegar flavors, I think we all came away with multiple favorites.

It turned out to be a great day to stroll through the Gardens with our own volunteer guide. Thank you. Lunch at the Canopy Cafe was enjoyed by all.
The President's Comments
by Julie Barnes
Greetings Garden Friends,
Where have the winter months of January and February gone? We experienced a combination of some warm days while others were just bone chilling. Early greenery is now stretching out from our spring bulbs and, will hopefully, not experience a late winter misfortune. So, how is March going to come in? According to a well- known proverb, the month of March can start out fiercely with a Lion’s roar of frigid cold, or else pleasantly as a newborn lamb? It can also go the opposite way. We will just wait and see.
Our winter luncheons at Pizza Roma and at the very well attended Thorn Hill Tap House were delightful. Mother Nature must have realized a dose of both was needed to relieve cabin fever. Let the gardening year begin. Look over your gardens to find plants to divide for our plant sale. To those interested in attending April’s Member’s Day Out, you must register by March 18th. For the GCFP Convention in Monroeville, an early registration fee is only $5 if your sign up is postmarked on or before March 10th. The committee chairs and I have also obtained District IX approval to host September’s Annual Meeting at Wildwood Golf Club. Our theme is “Falling into the Season.” Let’s make it memorable.
Think Spring, Julie, Your President
