What a beautiful weekend it’s going to be! Today’s high will be in the mid-60s under clear skies, with a low around freezing. It will warm up a bit on Sunday, with a high of 70 under partly cloudy skies and a low in the upper 30s.
Saturday will be the perfect day to enjoy a mini gardening workshop featuring Times and Democrat’s own longtime garden columnist Minnie Miller. The workshop is set for 10 to 11 a.m. in Walmart’s Garden Center. Miller will talk about and demonstrate growing herbs and vegetables in container gardens during the center’s spring season grand opening. She will also answer questions.
Miller has more than 45 years of experience in gardening, and has volunteered her time and expertise to 4-H groups, school and community gardens and beautification projects. She holds a bachelor’s degree in horticulture from Clemson University.
Miller said the information shared during the session will be useful for novice and expert gardeners — and everyone in between.
Also this weekend, Elloree will hold its semi-annual “Trash to Treasures” event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday along downtown Cleveland Street. Businesses will feature specials on a variety of items, including art, antiques, jewelry, collectibles, ladies apparel and more. A number of individual vendors will set up on the sidewalks downtown, as well, and yard sales will be held throughout the town.
And the Orangeburg Part-Time Players will kick off its 33rd season with the slapstick comedy “Leading Ladies” at 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the BlueBird Theatre in downtown Orangeburg. Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for seniors older than 55 and youths younger than 16. The show is not suitable for children. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the BlueBird Theatre at 803-536-5454 or visit facebook.com/groups/OburgPTPlayers/.
There’s lots of basketball, Carolina and Clemson baseball, NASCAR and more set for the weekend. See The T&D’s Sports pages for times and other details.
