Not so pleasant news from 'round these parts... The National Arboretum in DC has unilaterally decided that the largest azalea and largest boxwood gardens in the country are to be destroyed for no good reason...

Of course, there has been major push back from all the various clubs and societies and we have finally gotten some media attention which we all hope will get the folks there to change their minds but it's still purdy scary to think that these treasures could be lost forever...

Maybe someone can find some links from the couple articles published in the Washington Post over the last couple weeks and the letters to the editor...
