Winter did not want to let go in Northern Virginia this year, but it seems spring is finally here. There is a great place to enjoy its beauty at the annual Spring Plant Sale at Monroe Technology Center in Leesburg, Virginia. You will experience beauty in color and fragrance from hundreds of annuals, perennials, aquatic plants, trees, shrubs, herbs, fruits, vegetables and hanging baskets.

Be sure to visit our new “Wellness Center” where you can find many items to help you look and feel healthy with laughter. We are offering;

Aromatic soaps, donated by Tammy Mar, and custom made 3D soap holders by Chris Mar to protect your soap for health and longevity. Chris has also brought back his popular and best selling, Pokémon, bulbasaur holders for our air plants with a few new designs added for joy. We are offering companion essential oils and aromatherapy plants to partner with our soaps and holders.

So, come and enjoy! Students and volunteers will be ready to help you wearing purple T-shirts by Custom Ink.

  1. What beauty for those who rush to the sale grabbing their wagons as the excitement of the much awaited garden sale mounts. The first view of the beauty explodes before their eyes. Each plant designed so differently in every detail by God. Which one do you pick first knowing you can’t take them all. Every year I felt that way when I was living in Leesburg. I know those who come will feel the same way I did. A sale to raise scholarship money, what a wonderful endeavor.

    1. You are missed Rena being a joyful shopper and helper. Your joy was a perfect bud on the greens. I know you are greatly enjoying gardening in your new home in the lovely state of Al. You are a lifetime gardener so Al is luckier to have you than, “The Alabama Crimson Tide”🏀🏀🏀🏀

      1. I always appreciated your excited participation in the plant sales, Rena! And appreciate your comments from afar now. And, yes, hoping to have a sell-out to benefit those scholarship proceeds!

  2. I had the op for earlybird peek! Beautiful indeed. Lots of choices for outdoor, indoor, large spaces, small places and essential oils to help with the shopping. Those new 3D soap dishes are just delicious. I get to use my soaps often during the day and not worry about losing half the soap floating in it’s one suds!🤗 They are great!

    Also, a great place to chat with other gardeners. We find both expertise and novice alike enjoying the tips while bedded in every color imaginable among all sizes and shapes of green and golden leaves.

    This will be the last year in this location. A brand new school in a different location. So come on out and be a part of making memories as we leave this school in the memory book. Yet, looking forward to our NEW!

  3. Beautiful pictures above of plants and flowers, as usual🌸🌺🌷🌳🌿. I know those aromatic soaps must be pleasant to the nose😉Hay, do those soap dishes really keep your soap from melting so quickly? 🛁🚿seems the bars of soap at my home disappear quickly 😵

      1. Speaking truth reminds me of the late evangelist, Billy Graham. He spoke a single message of John 3: 16. Millions came to know Jesus. Truth spoken to the people of the earth caused heart changes: from earthly ground to heavenly ground where Jesus is , a ground of pure truth.

        Going back to my previous comment. In researching I found that the rabbi’s of the day instructed their students if they didn’t pray for the Messiah’s coming their prayers were worthless. Nathaniel prayer was answered immediately. He wanted the truth and Jesus the truth the way and the life (John 14:6) stood before him.

        Everyday for months I have awakened humming a tune . This morning the words came to me. It is sung in some churches as a communion song.

        Let us break bread together on our knees. (Common ground )
        Let us break bread together on our knees.
        When I fall on my face to the rising sun,
        O Lord, have mercy on me! …………..

        His MERCY. His Truth – the Life
        Ephesians 2: 4-5 “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ.

  4. I want to thank and let everyone know that the Plant Sale was a big success thanks to your support and prayers. The proceeds helped supply a nice amount of scholarship monies to seniors going to college this fall.
