Speaker: Millie Hendricks

It's another season of Millie's latest video observations of events in her garden. Often overlooked small things are so much easier to see on the big screen. There are "free range" fl owers and benefi cial wildlife. One example is the lifestyle and activities of our native bumblebee - the teddy bear of the insect world. Come and see the wonders in her garden.


Eric Kunz, of Seemore Gardens, has these suggestions:

If it`s raining where you are, remember this is a great opportunity to refill your water containers. Keep an eye on the weather. The Pitcher plants are fine outside; the temperature is not an issue. But it looks like next week, we will start to see temperatures dropping down into the 40`s in the evening. If you do not want your Sundews or Venus Flytraps to go dormant yet, i would suggest bringing them in


Please remember to bring non-perishable food for Long Island Cares.
