April Fool's Fun at Oak View Library

In preparation for April 1st frivolity, Oak View Library patrons received free "Doughnut Seed" packets.  As the packet indicates, seeds are suitable for Laurel & Hardy Zones 1-596, need to be planted by April 1st, sowed in a pile in a deep bowl, and covered with 1-2 inches of milk. 

While seed growth is unlikely, goofy grins and giggles are guaranteed!
