The library gardens provide an interesting variety of gardens used by the library patrons for quiet reflection and also ideas for their own gardens. A Children's Garden is used for a variety of presentations aimed to prick the interest of gardening in children. Virtually every Warren County MGV has done work at this Waynesville library horticultural site. Submitted by Nancy McLaughlin

Master Gardeners are often asked to support the community with their expertise. This time, when asked to judge a 4-H flower contest at the Hocking County fair, I had no idea what to expect. There were critters created from wood and old tires, children made from old oil drums, faeries in a galvanized garden tub, scarecrows, pumpkins and even minions in the competition. Using flowers, props and their imagination, county 4-H club members create their own displays. The beautiful results add floral interest to the grounds.
