This week in the garden vol. 11

Thank you to Joanne Russell - for hosting a delightful evening in her home and to Joy Penland who arranged the lovely flowers from the garden. Much happiness and laughter all around as well as some great favorite things/gardening tips were shared.

Thank you to Carol MacGregor, Leanne Penman, Jeanette Shewbert, and Kristi LoVerde who tended to the cottage garden on Thursday morning. Remember this is our cottage garden and always in need of a few minutes of your time. Honey-do list in metal drawer of porch table. Carol mentioned the Lawrenceville Street side needs tending.

Going Forward as a LARGE CLUB we will no longer text/call individual members for rsvp. Communication will be through this weekly email. So please respond in a timely manner.
