PROGRAM

We had a lovely tour of Pat B’s garden and yard. She has so many plants and trees! It was so beautiful and many of us are very envious! She had a large book of what she planted; some have not survived. She is a great resource for anyone looking for information on planting or recreating their garden. We enjoyed wine and snacks and orange creamsicle and root beer floats; perfect for a warm summer’s evening. She does offer extras of her plants when she
thins them so let her know if you want something. THANKS PAT FOR YOUR FABULOUS HOSPITATILY. A GREAT TIME WAS HAD BY ALL IN ATTENDANCE!

We had a fun and creative garden hat contest that was won by Lori D and second place went to Pam C.
