Sweet Pea Season

AHS members recieved a mailed pack of sweet pea seeds
in early May. The public is invited to pick-up seeds at the
Wheeler/Stallard Museum (look for a basket on the porch
for no-contact pick-up).

Thanks to generous sponsors Bryan May Architecture, ACRA
& The Aspen Times for making this historic tradition possible!
