ANOTHER POND TOUR? SURE!

SPLASH is a pond and garden tour sponsored by our friends at Chalily to raise money for special causes – they donate 100% of proceeds. (For example, last year’s tour benefitted Project Healing Waters.) This year’s event will be on September 24th, from 8am – 6pm. Tickets include breakfast, lunch & dinner, plus a bus ticket – if you like. Details also shared to the St. Louis Water Garden Society Facebook page. (Follow us!)

Mark your calendar to join in the fun.

Photo of the month

Ever wonder how much weight a Victoria Water Lily can hold? These oversized plants absolutely live up to the name of their native “water garden,” the Amazon. Each giant pad can support up to 140 lbs. So, this darling violinist is well under the limit.

(Please don’t climb aboard plants you don’t own.)
