In keeping with the Halloween season, my garden has pretty much given up the ghost...with the exception of mums and a few hardy dahlias. If you're beginning to miss your garden already maybe it's time to plan for a winter garden visit. the Tamaqua Chamber of Commerce is planning a bus trip to Longwood Gardens on November 25. Longwood Gardens for Christmas is, in a word...extraordinary. Along with (who is in charge of counting these?) over 6,000 plants there is organ music, carolers, fountains, lights, sing a longs. It's something you just have to see. For more information, contact the Tamaqua Chamber of Commerce at 570-668-1880 or firstname.lastname@example.org. It could even be an early Christmas gift!
If you can't wait that long for something to perk you up in this chilly weather, why not dance your weather blues away? Sweet Arrow Lake County Park is having a Change of Seasons Oldies Dance in the clubhouse on Friday, November 10 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Music will be by "The Legends" and tickets are $12 at the door or $10 in advance and include refreshments. For tickets and information call 570-624-3018.
