Cookies and Blossoms, the popular event that allows Baylor faculty, staff and students to wander through some of the university's outdoor beauty spots while nibbling on delicious cookies, returns on Friday, July 29. This month's party, sponsored by Facility Services, will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Reynolds Courtyard at George W. Truett Theological Seminary. Rolled cookies, such as gingerbread men and various sugar cookies, and lemonade will be served.

The monthly gathering is the brainchild of Lynn Woodward, coordinator of campus advocacy for facility services and flower aficionado. In fact, most of the Baylor community is used to seeing Woodward in green workpants and shirt, planting flowers in the university's gardens. At the Cookies and Blossoms party, she will be more than happy to guide guests through the gardens and point out the different plants. And her homemade cookies are not to be missed.

"The Black-eyed Susans are glorious right now and so are the Turk's Caps," said Woodward about the courtyard garden. "Bloomers in there right now include perennials such as Black-eyed Susans, Turk's Caps, Purple Coneflowers and Zexmenia and annual Begonias and two types of Zinnias."

The Cookies and Blossoms party is free and open to all Baylor faculty, staff and students.
