Fun through the Eyes of Maggie Rose McGurk column

Appreciating the plants growing in the area

The annual Lincoln Hills Garden Group’s plant sale at the Sports Pavilion last Saturday went off without a hitch. Many events were canceled that day, due to the weather forecast, except the garden group. Members kept their fingers crossed and hoped for the best, and sure enough, the rain stopped by 7 a.m.

Each year, the garden group receives individual donations of garden-related items to resell. Additionally, The Lincoln Hills Garden Group is appreciative of local businesses that provided items for a fun and lively plant sale drawing, including Target, Lowe’s and Roger’s Coffee in Lincoln; High Hand Nursery in Loomis; and Green Acres Nursery and Pottery World in Rocklin.

The annual plant sale makes it possible for the Lincoln Hills Garden Group to help support garden-related projects in Lincoln, from library plants to the Lincoln High School Farm, Old Fruitvale School and The Salt Mine.


In last week’s column, I made a mistake when I said Lincoln Police Chief Doug Lee said,Do not leave your home address in your GPS. Instead, use 1500 Del Webb Boulevard. Put your car keys beside your bed at night, and if you hear a noise outside, just press the key’s panic button.” That information came from other sources.
