Dear Garden Club Friends,
Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you will find useful information and enjoy seeing pictures of what you and your fellow members have done.
Our garden club was well represented at the Boston Flower Show. We had 6 adults and 3 children enter. Our club won the Club Competition Award and first place for our “Potting Room” entry. We also received individually, five 1st place, three 2nd place, two 3rd place and two honorable mentions. Additionally we won two special novice awards and two interpretation awards. Please take a look at pictures of our entries.
The March design workshop, “In and Out of Water” led by Dora Lee, the director of the Sogetsu School Massachusetts Branch was both educational and fun. All participants learned a new form of floral arranging and hopefully will use those skills to compete in the Sweet Tray competition at our annual meeting in May. Get inspired by the pictures in the photo gallery to create your own entry for the competition
A number of our members went to the premier of “The Gardener”, a documentary about Frank Cabot and his 28 acre garden, Les Quatre Vents. We got together for a potluck dinner before we headed to the theater and it made for a lovely evening. Think about joining in on the next spontaneous trip or event.
In April, we will have our joint meeting with the other Weston Garden Clubs and will enjoy hearing Andrew Keys expound upon extraordinary alternatives to everyday problem plants. The Provisionals are having their 3rd Wheatland Bowl competition, “From your Yard, Plus!” on April 9th. Other activity in April will include a clean-up of the Native Plant Garden and the replanting of the trough.
If you have nothing else to do, feel free to come help me in my garden with spring clean-up. Mother Nature left me not only the usual clean-up, but trees and branches down all over the place. The good thing is I will get to enjoy looking at pretty crocuses and other spring blooms while straightening it all up.
Here’s to spring!
