A Bea in the Garden column: Plenty of ways to make up for late spring
Did you take part in the world event that happened on last Saturday? Did you know that it was "National Gardening in the Nude Day?" I myself did not find out about it until well into the day so I am sorry I did not tell you in time to take part. As it was, I got a lot of scratches...
