Garden Club of San Miguel de Allende Transforms the Biblioteca’s Patios




By Debra Broussard

Thanks to a group of dedicated local volunteer gardeners, brilliant colors of the season now fill the blue and white talavera pots surrounding the fountain in the Biblioteca’s central patio.

And that wasn’t all: members of the Garden Club of San Miguel de Allende brought their talents and their tools and replanted items throughout the Biblioteca’s two patios.

They also designed a landscape project to prune and fertilize existing large plants and add new low-maintenance plants such as colorful succulents, hearty flowering trees, trailing vincas (periwinkle), and san serveria (also known as lengua de vaca, espada de rey, or snake plant). The green-thumbed volunteers included Faye Guidry, Caylee Pugh, Carol Pugh, Gay Mayfield, Patia Finkbeiner, Beverly Vanzandt, and Rebecca Dawson. The Biblioteca’s Café Santa Ana staff pitched in too.

Caylee is new to San Miguel de Allende and drafted her mother, Carol, a professional landscape designer, to assist while visiting in town for Caylee’s wedding. Welcome to town, Caylee, we are glad to have you here!

The funds to support this project were generously donated by the Garden Club, Janel Wood, Marianna Greene, Nina Hughes of Dallas, Texas, and Dr Raymond Broussard of Albuquerque, New Mexico. All are frequent visitors to San Miguel and ardent flower and vegetable gardeners
