 Whose Garden Is Pictured? - Jill Stahl-Tyler

 This is the time to strut your stuff!  Remember those photos you sent to Jill?  We will play detective, trying to guess the gardener who created the garden shown in the photo.  Questions/answers, comments, special considerations may all be addressed.  Think of this as an “armchair garden tour.”

  • Time:               6:00 p.m.
  • Hostesses:      Ann Wright-Parsons & Judy Wagenbach
  • Design:            Create crescent-shaped design using plant material  from your garden/yard.
  • Horticulture:  Any worthy specimen from your garden.

Souper Supper - Making Hydrangea Rings - Nancy Renaud

 What better way to celebrate the change to cool autumnal temperatures than to celebrate a communal, autumnal-themed meal and then to create beautiful hydrangea rings?  This meeting will surely satisfy appetites yearning for great food, conversation and creativity.

Nancy Renaud will be on hand to lead us in creating the hydrangea rings.  Many hydrangea blossoms will be needed, so please collect them from your yard to share with members who do not have access to the plants.   The small rings needed will be available at the meeting.

  • Location:         Green Mountain Chapel
  • Time:           6:00 p.m.
  • Hostesses:      Wendy Bayliss,  Ann Wright-Parsons and Carolyn Pieciak 
  • Design:            Create a mass design using plant material from  your garden/yard.
  • Horticulture:  Any worthy specimen from your garden/yard.
