A Visit to Beech Creek Botanical Garden & Nature Preserve, Alliance Ohio

Visitor's Center at Beech Creek
A Nice Patio for a Picnic
Scented Geraniums in Containers
A Sweet Bay
The Plants for Sale
A Miniature Garden for Live Turtles!
My herbal companion, Bonnie and I made our annual trip to Ohio for plant shopping.  We used to go to Lily of the Valley Herb Farm.  Sadly it was sold this year, but the good news is they are selling plants at Beech Creek Botanical Garden & Nature Preserve.  They don't have all of the plants that they used to have, but we still managed to fill the new car with delightful smells for the trip home.  They are currently raising funds to complete a master plan.  They need members and volunteers to help Beech Creek succeed.  So if you are in the Alliance, Ohio area and would like to help, click on the link above to get details.  Hopefully, you have had a good day.  The weather has been changeable and we are still getting rain!  Hopefully, we will get some dry days so I can get the new kids planted.  Talk to you later.
