This is a short blog today. I just wanted to let folks know that the CGC will be closed for the weekend in observance of Independence Day. The staff will be using this time for "extra" vacation, and enjoying time with family and friends. The gardens are open, though, just not the building. You are always welcome to come for a stroll, pack a picnic and enjoy the scenery. Don't forget to look for the plant of the week. It's a Golden Raintree (Koelreuteria paniculata) and is in full glory right now! Have a wonderful holiday!
