The Zesty Garden - April 9

The Japanese word ‘bonsai’ is two characters that literally means, “planted, in a shallow container.”  Bonsai is an art form more than 2000 years old, and you’ll learn more about it on today’s zesty garden. First on the program, though…have you ever thought about hosting a garden party? I mean the kind with twinkling lights, white linen, small sandwiches…and dressing up? Michelle and Darla from the Tasty Trek will inspire you to greatness with your own party.  Later, author Kerry Ann Mendez will talk about her new book, The Right-size Flower Garden.  On Petals and Prose…Have you heard of kumquaticide? Helen Cannon explores an essay about how sometimes no matter what you do or how well-intentioned you are, unintended consequences can happen.
