So close to spring

The calendar says we are still a few weeks away from the start of spring, yet the signs of the season were on full display at the Gantz Farmhouse. On Feb. 23, Gardens at Gantz Farm volunteer Mary Jane LaLonde led a class of budding craftspeople as they made festive wreaths using lemon leaves from a local floral shop and dried flowers from the garden. Pictured here is Brandie Thacker who made this arrangement using dried celosias, sea lavender, strawflowers and yarrow. The Grove City resident said she plans to hang it in her work-from-home office. “It will give me something pretty to look at until spring comes,” said Thacker.
