Happy New Year!
I decided to include my family in the January newsletter! So this is the Christensen Clan winding down from 2016 and looking forward to many blessings in 2017!  One of highlights of 2016 was celebrating my husband Bruce’s 60th Birthday fishing with all of our kids.  I also took a little excursion to the Chicago Botanical Gardens late this fall with my daughter April.   If you are ever in the Chicago area the botanical gardens are a beautiful place to see plants in action!
With this newsletter we mark the start of a new gardening year.  Just think of all the possibilities it has to offer.   The seed catalogs are marching 3×3 into my place and I am excited to see all of the new seeds and plant material. For the next couple months I will keep you up to date on the new items that will be available at The Petal Patch as well as upcoming events including The Container Parties!  So stay in touch via email or Facebook and stay informed!
