Green thumbs grow thru trowel & error.
Greetings Garden Friends,
Just like that, summer falls into September. The summer warmth surrounding us will slowly recede into cooler autumn as our nights lengthen. Appreciate the brilliance of annual flower colors before they fade. This year, David Councill Park was planted by members with colorful zinnias, marigolds, purple fountain grass, and petunias, Edith's garden, marigolds and begonias, while UPMC had tropical hibiscus, profusion zinnias, and geraniums that delighted many. In my garden, Hummingbirds are still visiting their favorites, a joy to watch, until they move on again. And speaking of visits, a great showing of students and their families attended our August awards lunch following the meeting, to read poems, or to express their appreciation. Congratulations again to Chris Hawthorne, Barb Oswald, and to everyone involved with our Youth as IGC received a glowing report in the Tribune Review, Hampton Journal. Afterward, learning about solitary bee houses was insightful, especially when we created our own. Then several members learned about Lake Arthur on a boat tour field trip.
Make it a September to remember!
Julie, Ingomar Garden Club President
