DEAR SUN SPOTS: Members of the Mt. Blue Area Garden Club will hold their annual spring plant sale at 9 a.m. May 20 at Meetinghouse Park, across from the courthouse in Farmington. Many varieties of perennial plants will be offered at reasonable prices, along with a few annuals. The plants come from members’ and friends’ gardens. Anyone interested in donating plants should bring their potted donations to the park between 7:15 and 8:45 a.m. The plant sale is a fundraiser for our scholarship offered to a Mt. Blue senior who is going on to study in the area of horticulture. Last year we were able to give a $600 scholarship to a deserving graduate. Part of the proceeds are also used to plant flowers at the courthouse garden and the WWI Memorial Gardens. Come and shop for your plant needs while supporting our scholarship and beautification programs. For more information, please call 207-645-2067 or 207-578-0145. — Mt. Blue Area Garden Club.
