It has certainly been an odd summer...and hot too!! Some things truly enjoyed the weather we received and some things did not. Many perennials are stressed and just plain done, after all, they started two weeks early.
Despite the heat, there was a great turn out for our August meeting. Our speaker had some good advice; know your space and write a list of what you like, then research those plants before you hit the nursery. He also said to make a garden interesting, think about integrating fruits and vegetables like tiered or potted strawberries and cucumbers in among your perennials.
SEPTEMBER 15th at 7PM the club will be meeting at the Pulaski Wesleyan Church to hear garden club member Charlotte Grabowski speak on "Butterflies & Hummingbirds". Those are two things we certainly want to see more of in our gardens! Again, this is a great opportunity for you to invite a friend who may be interested in joining our club. The refreshments that night will be provided by Alice Ridgeway, Nancy Lichtenstein, Jean Lee-Mosier, Ellen Davis, and Charlotte Grabowski.
Enjoy the rest of our warm weather and hope to see everyone in September.
