Upcoming Covington Nursery & Landscape Activities

Covington’s Nursery & Landscape Company, located just a short drive east in Rowlett,  is offering a variety of cool summer programs and classes for adults and children.    If you are a Neil Sperry fan, you can drop by Covington’s  on Thursday, June 5th, for his book signing.  Need something for the kids to do when school is out?   Covington offers classes for ages 5 to 10 and are just $5.00 per class.  Angela Henderson  has already signed up two of her children for all four classes.

For more information about Covington’s summer 2014 classes and events,   please see their website:
