Our last meeting before summer break, this Thursday, June 9th. Speaker Loren Russell will present "Why did my plant die? - lessons from the rock garden". Loren, a NARGS member from Oregon, speaks with humor and passion for Mediterranean-style plants and gardens. He has written and lectured on alpine rock gardening topics for over 25 years. Join us at Bellevue Botanical Garden at 7:00 for refreshments, 7:30 for program. Our meeting is free and open to the public. Here's a picture of Loren's alpine house - he is one serious rock gardener!
