OAKHURST — Sue Langley, aka green thumb extraordinaire, photographer and founder of the well-known-and-loved local website Sierra Foothill Gardening, says she picked up this passion for planting while working and playing in her mother’s garden as a child.
The prolific blogger and giver of great advice will talk about “Fall Planting and Color in Your Garden” at an Oakhurst Library workshop scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016.
“Let’s remind ourselves of all the common and hardy plants, from trees to perennials, that will give us welcome fall color and also get ready for planting a mountain wildflower meadow, large or small. I say ‘let’s’ because I always learn from the experiences of others as well,” says Sue.
After a long career in wedding photography in Southern California, Sue and her husband Larry moved to the Sierra Foothills where she now “works and plays” researching gardening in snow and deer country on their property near the Sierra National Forest.
Sue, who has a degree in art, design and photography, is past president of the Mountain Laurel Garden Club and runs an active Facebook page, Flea Market Gardening, for people who love to incorporate found items into their home slices of paradise.
The free presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Oakhurst Branch Library. The workshop will be held in the Oakhurst Library’s Community Room located at 49044 Civic Circle Drive. For more information, call the library at (559) 683-4838.
