Our Children’s Learning Garden has a New Scarecrow

The CLG patrons did a cleanup of the garden this week and added a new scarecrow to coordinate with the Lewes Public Library Story Walk in Stango Park.

YOU DID IT !!!!!


We exceeded our goal.  Thank you to all of our supporters.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

On Friday, September 4th, members of Lewes in Bloom along with Mayor Ted Becker celebrated reaching our Bucks For Blooms Fundraiser goal by painting the final level of our giant tulip on 2nd Street.  We are so grateful to all our friends and neighbors who gave so generously.  We could not have done it without all of your support!

Lewes in Bloom is truly grateful that we will be able to continue our mission to promote the beautification and maintenance of Historic Lewes and the community at large.  Diane McGreal, fundraising chair, filled in the final level of the tulip stem.  Dianne Stevens, LIB co-chair, was interviewed for WRDE TV as well as the Cape Gazette about our accomplishments and plans going forward.

The Bucks for Blooms campaign was originally schedule to go thru the end of September.  As a result of your generous support, we reached our goal before the end of August.

The ability to contribute is always available.  You can mail contributions to Lewes in Bloom, P.O. Box 308, Lewes, DE 19958 or click HERE to go to our on-line DONATION PAGE.

The Colors of Gateway

Gateway Garden is one of the largest gardens that Lewes in Bloom plants and maintains. Its located where Freeman Highway splits off from Kings Highway at the entrance to Lewes.  There are over 1000 annuals planted each year.  Most people enjoy a quick glimpse as they pass by in their car either entering or leaving Lewes.  Here are some pictures taken on 8/7/2020 so you can enjoy the colors of Gateway this summer.




LIB General Meeting & Box Lunch – Mask required @ Cape Henlopen State Park - Main Picnic Pavilion
Oct 6 @ 11:00 am

October General Meeting
Text by Dianne Stevens.

Good news! The vote is in and it overwhelmingly showed that you’re ready to see your fellow
bloomers again! An outdoor meeting and luncheon has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 6, at
11:00 a.m. in the large picnic pavilion at Cape Henlopen State Park. Details will be coming in an
email blast soon. At that time, you will be able to designate your box lunch choice and will be asked to
pay in advance by sending in your choice and check to Irene Robertson. Watch for the email blast in
the next couple of weeks.

Merchandise will be available at the meeting. There will be an assortment of hoodies ($30), crewneck
sweatshirts ($28), long sleeve denim shirts ($30), long sleeve and ¾ sleeve ladies shirts ($25), and
hats ($20). Sweatshirts will have a $3 upcharge for sizes 2X and larger. New this year will be auto
decals ($5) and making a return will be our Lewes in Bloom decorative license plates ($20) in two
different styles for the front of your car.

To avoid cross-contamination, each item has been individually bagged with the size and price on each
bag. Not knowing how well the wi-fi works in the state park, we will not be using our credit card
reader, so payment will be by check only. Please no cash. If the merchandise is not available in the
color or size you need, it can be ordered with a quick turn-around. If you will not be attending the
meeting, but would like to purchase some merchandise, please email Dianne Stevens at
