|Our Green Garden Showcase Flag/Sign|
The Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase was a big hit this year, with an estimated 2000 visitors perusing the 80+ gardens opened for public view. We not only teamed up with our butterfly friend Loree Bryer to give away milkweed seeds and hundreds of milkweed seedlings she grew for the showcase (many with eggs and caterpillars on them already!) but did a little bit of educating about solar panels, rainbarrels, organic gardening, and worm composting. Whew!

Thanks to all who stopped by, and let us know if you have questions. We have TONS of milkweed seed packets left, so if you want some drop a line at archiesgarden at gmail dot com. We've found a few new caterpillars on the leftover seedlings so we hope to have some new chrysalides* photos soon!
*that's the official plural of "chrysalis," just so's you know.
There are lots more photos of the latest flowers on our Archie's Garden Facebook page, so drop by and "Like" if you'd like to see updates in your Facebook thread. Feel free to post your own garden photos and helpful info too, and looking forward to seeing you in the garden!
