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.

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.”

Annual Garden Tours (rain or shine)
Our garden tours are a highlight of the program year. These tours, which are open to BFA & GC members only, allow us to ramble through gardens soaking up the beauty while being able to ask questions of the gardener and to share stories.
This year we will be visiting the gardens of (in this order): 1-Karen Davis, 2-Mary Rivers, and 3-Lynn Kuralt at her Dummerston home (not the Crosby House).
WEATHER: overcast/drizzle will NOT stop the tours ... Thunderstorms will.
Refreshments will be served at Lynn’s home on Rice Farm Road in Dummerston. Directions will be available the day of the tour.

Unique Houseplants - Sally Winchester, Windham Flowers
For many gardeners, March is the month that gives them itchy fingers…waiting to go outside and get busy. Or, some gardeners want to escape to Florida. Help is on the way! Sally will help us escape the March mud by teaching us about unique/unusual and exciting houseplants. Not only will Sally have samples for us to see, she will instruct us about their care. As a bonus, the plants will be available for purchase at the close of the program.
