The gallery and trails will be open. After 3 inches of rain, the creek is flowing over its banks and the Hemlock Grove Trail is spectacular, running along the edge of the creek. Dogwoods are in full bloom and many wildflowers have appeared in the woodland next to the gallery. So come on out and enjoy this beautiful spring before the heat of summer. I’ll post photos of the creek and trail on facebook on Saturday.
Patrick is in Atlanta at the Spring Festival on Ponce show, but he has left quite a bit of his beautiful hand made glass jewelry at the gallery. Carol is preparing for her first spring firing, which includes mugs and dishes decorated with our spring flowers!
The UTC SimCenter – Center of Excellence in Applied Computational Science and Engineering – a center for integrated research and education, is working with us to develop a map of our nature trails, including all the stops along the trail. This will be available on our IPhones, etc., soon! More about this later.
Don’t forget our second Spring Wildflower Hike April 16! We had over 60 happy hikers on the first hike, so be sure to sign up as we may have to limit numbers. See Facebook liquidambar/svi for photos of the last hike.
