    Thanks as always for the wonderful reference material. I couldn’t help smiling about the San Francisco flower & Garden show being held in Sacramento.

    The Desert Horticulture Society of the Coachella Valley is having their annual desert gardens tour on March 17th. It is a self-guided tour in the Palm Springs area of multiple gardens that emphasize water-wise designs and plants. Check out their website for more information.

    Bromeliad show/sale at Sherman Gardens on the 30th, I think. Sorry I missed Dustin. Did not see this post in time.

    Happy Spring, Denise!
