    Description: Spring Ephemerals – 1pm – 3pm RSVP to klanies@co.thurston.wa.us by March 11. You will receive directions to the garden when you register. The announcement that spring is really upon us is made by the quiet budding of some plants, and the colorful exclamation of others. Come see and share the beauty of these early harbingers – corydalis in many colors, red flowering currant, euphorbia, brunnera, lungwort, unfurling ferns etc. The hellebores should still be in their glory as well. Bring gardening gloves and a plant knife/tool. We’ll be digging and splitting some small plants so you can take home a start. Beverages and nibbles will be provided.
