Hurray for Spring!

Mar 19, 2020

Today, the first day of spring 2020, is a wonderful time to look ahead to a time when the sun is shining bright and flowers are in bloom.  The North Gower branch is fortunate to be recipients of a local gardening group's hard work.    Each year this hard working group brings colour and vibrance to our small town.     The branch planters are festooned with geraniums, petunias and sweet potato vines.Thank you to the Gardeners.  We appreciate all you do!  pink flowers
