I can dream, can’t I?

It is sleeting outside, and indications are this will be a cold, gray day, with worse on the way.

But take heart all lovers of the great outdoors, the Cavalry is on the way….

The Starkville Arts Council and Mississippi State University will present the 2nd annual “Everything Garden Expo” on March 6-7 at the Mississippi Horse Park on the MSU campus in Starkville.

This promises to be even better than last year when vendors were so happy with the quality of speakers and turn-out, 99 percent signed up for this year on the spot!

Roads - Dr. Dirt and Felder

Felder cuts up with another Mississippi great – “Dr. Dirt”

Among highlights you can look forward to are the nationally renowned Felder Rushing and radio talk show host Nellie Neal, aka Garden Mama.

Return speakers will include Jeff Fulton discussing winter gardening (that’s not explored often enough), and Dr. John Boyd will share the latest information and tips on what he calls “Cancer in the Garden.”  You would know it as “WEEDS” and I’ve got a bad case.  So glad to know it isn’t incurable.

I could go on and on, but I will provide more detailed information for anyone interested.  In the meantime mark your calendars for March 6-7 and plan to lose your winter doldrums.
