It’s a Sacramento fall tradition – and now back at the Shepard Center.
This weekend, the Camellia City Porcelain Artists will host its 30th annual show and fall tea with the theme “Autumn Splendor.” Admission and parking are free.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 9 and 10, patrons are invited to sip tea, enjoy snacks and browse the show, packed with beautifully hand-painted creations.
“Enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks while viewing the art of traditional and creative works of hand-painted porcelain pieces from local artists,” say the organizers. “Christmas Tree raffle to benefit the Sacramento Zoo, hand-painted china for purchase and much more!”
The artists canceled their 2020 show and tea, due to pandemic precautions. Patrons to this weekend's event are asked to wear face masks (when not sipping tea or nibbling treats) and maintain social distancing.
Shepard Center is located at 3330 McKinley Blvd., Sacramento, in McKinley Park.

Dig In: Garden Checklist
For week of Sept. 24:
This week our weather will be just right for fall gardening. What are you waiting for?
* Now is the time to plant for fall. The warm soil will get these veggies off to a fast start.
* Keep harvesting tomatoes, peppers, squash, melons and eggplant. Tomatoes may ripen faster off the vine and sitting on the kitchen counter.
* Compost annuals and vegetable crops that have finished producing.
* Cultivate and add compost to the soil to replenish its nutrients for fall and winter vegetables and flowers.
* Fertilize deciduous fruit trees.
* Plant onions, lettuce, peas, radishes, turnips, beets, carrots, bok choy, spinach and potatoes directly into the vegetable beds.
* Transplant cabbage, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower as well as lettuce seedlings.
* Sow seeds of California poppies, clarkia and African daisies.
* Transplant cool-weather annuals such as pansies, violas, fairy primroses, calendulas, stocks and snapdragons.
* Divide and replant bulbs, rhizomes and perennials. That includes bearded iris; if they haven’t bloomed in three years, it’s time to dig them up and divide their rhizomes.
* Dig up and divide daylilies as they complete their bloom cycle.
* Divide and transplant peonies that have become overcrowded. Replant with “eyes” about an inch below the soil surface.
* Late September is ideal for sowing a new lawn or re-seeding bare spots.
