It was an unusually cold and windy day for the annual Ashcroft Communities in Bloom Plant Swap. But that won’t stop a gardener. Everyone just put on the layers and huddled a little closer together while reaching for the little green treasures. The cold was but a passing thing; new plants in the garden will - hopefully - last forever. Donations to CiB were still warmly given and received.

Diehard gardeners

One unseasonably cold day is not enough to cast a pall over the Ashcroft Communities in Bloom's annual plant swap.
