A Tip From Texas
Jo Leland, who has managed the Official Journey North garden in Texas since 1996, is getting smart after all these years:
"We'll be tracking tulips on a specialized map that shows where all current gardens are located," says Leland. "This will simplify things for the younger kids and save time (our most precious commodity) for everyone. Here's what I did.
1) I printed a copy of the map that shows where all Journey North gardens are planted.
2) I took it to the local Kinko's and had it enlarged 320%.
3) I trimmed off the edges so it would go into their laminator--and walked out with a specialized map for under $5.00.
