'Not Your Mama's Garden Tour'

 

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.- The Oconee Area Citizen Advocacy presents its inaugural “Not Your Mama’s Garden Tour” Saturday, April 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. a news release says.

Starting at Saint Stephens Episcopal Church in downtown Milledgeville, the tour highlights six gardens in the picturesque small town. This unique tour is friendly for citizens of all ages.

“There has not been a garden tour in Milledgeville in several years, and as a gardener myself, I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness and money for Citizen Advocacy,” Margaret Chambliss OACA Coordinator said. “The tour, however, would never have happened without the willingness of the gardeners, the Georgia College public relations team, the OACA board of directors and Master Gardener Rae Wade and her husband Arnold Wade.”

Forecasters warn the threat of wildfires is high across much of Georgia, and any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly.

The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for high fire danger from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today.

The warning covers North and Central Georgia, where winds are expected to gust up to 25 mph.

The "red flag" warning covers all of Central Georgia's counties. The warning says people should take care with outdoor fires and contact local authorities before burning.

13WMAZ meteorologist David Ernst says a measuring station at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport has gotten 7.92 inches of rain this year. That's more than 6 inches below normal and more than 4 inches less than last year.

He said Central Georgia has seen sustained wind speeds of 10 to 15 mph.

Forecasters say humidity will be low, helping to create potentially dangerous fire conditions.
