Nehrling Gardens, in Gotha, hosted its 10th Annual Holiday Amaryllis Festival Saturday, Dec. 11, and gave folks an opportunity to purchase some amaryllis bulbs, as well as other plants, for themselves or as gifts. Other items for sale included pottery, folk art, baked treats and organic herbs.
Avian Reconditioning Center brought several birds to the event, the Olympia High strings students performed for the crowd, and children could participate in several nature-themed activities.
Nehrling Gardens is open to visitors from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Open garden days are held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the first and second Saturdays of each month, and community members are invited to drop by for a tour or volunteer on projects.
