It has been a chilly winter.
Our minds abound with the thoughts of Daffodils and Crocuses

Digging our hands into the warm mother earth and reaping the benefits of our temperate climate.
Spring is soon to sprout and color will splash across our canvas.

CBMS is entering our big spring fundraiser.
Our hopes are to fund student field trips and take the burden off of the parents.

So take a peek at these baskets of geraniums and petunias, Annuals throw color in our early pots and window boxes, The herbs add spice to our already rich life, throw in a few perennials for a gentle reminder each year that despite the cold and depth of the snow spring will always arrive with color that thrives.

Please support CBMS PTO and our local business, Evergreen Gardens, in making your windows bright, your gardens bountiful and your porches inviting.
