Westlake in Bloom is just around the corner

Author and reporter Clare Ansberry put it best: “Gardens and flowers have a way of bringing people together, drawing them from their homes.” After a long, hard winter, the temperatures are on the rise, song birds are beginning their journey northward, and gardeners, anxious for another season of playing in the soil, pore over seed catalogues and gardening magazines and websites.

We hope that while you are making plans for your yard or garden, you will also consider entering the Westlake in Bloom program. 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 26 at 5 p.m. Gardens will be judged in July and awards presented at a ceremony on Wednesday, August 12, at 6:30 p.m. 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!
