Westlake in Bloom is just around the corner

As I am writing this article today, the temperature has reached 50 degrees, the sun is shining and the ice is melting. There is actually a promise of spring in the air. Many of you gardeners have likely been perusing the seed and plant catalogs received in the mail and thinking and planning what to do with your gardens this year. 

We hope your thinking and planning includes entering the Westlake in Bloom program again or maybe for the first time. Entry forms will be available mid-April at Cahoon Nursery, Dean’s Greenhouse, Gale’s Westlake Garden Center and Plant Crafters, or at City Hall and on the city’s website at www.cityofwestlake.org

The deadline for entering your garden is Friday, June 27, at 5 p.m. Gardens will be judged in July and awards presented at a ceremony on Aug. 13 at LaCentre. The City of Westlake is very proud of this unique community program and of our residents and businesses that are involved in and support the program.  

So, put a reminder on your calendar to pick up an entry form and make sure to get it to City Hall by the deadline date. We look forward to seeing everyone at the awards ceremony in August. Happy gardening!
