Notes from the Museums: Blossoming Memories

- Advertisement -

The Memory Garden at the May-Stringer Museum has some giant ginger plants in bloom right now. When you visit the Museum, take time to spend a few quiet minutes in the garden. Ronette Snyder, volunteer coordinator for the Brooksville Garden Club, says there are three types of gingers in the garden. “The Red Velvet Ginger has a huge, red blossom and the back of the leaves feel like velvet,” Snyder says. There is also another giant flower on the Shell Ginger. The cascading blossoms have a shell quality to them and there is a bonus when a ‘shell’ opens to reveal a small, orchid-like yellow bloom.

The third ginger type in the garden is a Butterfly Ginger. This new addition has not flowered yet, but is sure to be as stunning as its family members. Ms. Snyder is welcoming new volunteers for the once a month care of the garden at the Museum. Please call 352-799-0129 and leave a message if you would like to help.

Memories are our history, we need our community to help us care for our blossoming memories.

The Museums are open!
