Letter from our Scholarship Recipient for the Coming Year

 

Several of us have had the pleasure of meeting and working with our scholarship candidate, Blaise Hohl. He worked at several of our gardens over the summer and plans to assist with the tulip planting. He recently sent an email to be shared with the Lewes in Bloom membership.

He as well as the Horticulture teacher, Dr. Peter Olson, from Cape Henlopen High School will be our guest speakers at the September meeting. As a way of introduction, we are including Blaise’s email. Please put September 11 on your calendar and come hear more about the program at Cape and about this delightful young man.

Hello my name is Blaise Hohl, and I am the first student that is doing the Lewes in Bloom Scholarship. I am in my senior year at Cape Henlopen High School and have been in the horticultural program for three years now, I am really interested in the subject. On June 28th 2018, I got to visit my first garden. First, I was at the flower boxes on the corner of Dogfish and Graves, where I dead headed and trimmed back the various flowers. Then, I went to The Fisher-Martin Herb Garden next to the frontier house. There I got to meet Diana O’Hagan, she taught me how to trim back various different plants and then ended the day by giving me an amazing shovel that is very useful. I have also been to the Mary Vessels Garden where I got to plant marigolds and pick up leaves. Dennis and Sue Crawford have been very helpful and informative during this time it has been great fun talking to them. I look forward to planting a bunch of tulip bulbs in the fall and getting to meet everyone that I haven’t yet.
