Pat Miller's center piece is a delightful collection of pine cones and feathers
Polly Berginc, from the American Institute of Floral Designers, shared her experience of decorating the White House at Christmas time. Part of a special team chosen every year, a floral designers dream come true, she presented a slide show of an exciting (and exhausting) two weeks of decorating elaborate Christmas trees to designing beautiful containers. Members of Greybrook Garden Club were our guests so Polly's lovely White House Christmas created a "holiday." mood.
The IGC members added to the festive atmosphere with an elaborate assortment of pastas, pastries, condiments, cakes and candies for refreshments. Can you figure out this cupcake design ?
Recently some lovely handpainted birdhouses, along with ceramic pieces, were donated to the Ingomar Garden Club as a result of the passing of a dear member, Chelo Farina. These are being sold along with other handpainted piecies by talented members at the November 7th meeting.
You can see all the photos of birdhouses and ceramic items by clicking on the link and then clicking on the individual photo for more details. here on our Facebook page.
- This photo was taken today after many items had been purchased. These creations are art pieces. Don;t believe our little feathered friends will ever see them.
Fall greetings gardeners,
September sure went fast! My flowers are all suffering from a lack of water, I may be partially to blame. I hope that yours are fairing better!
Thank you to the members who stopped by our tent at the Mccandless community day. We had a great day, and most of us enjoyed showing our worms! See worms here! Encouraged more kids than prospective members, we got our message out either way. Thanks.
I've been told that the Harmony tour was a success, wish I could have been there.
This month we invite our neighboring clubs to join our meeting, please make them welcome! Don't forget your food!
Hope you all can join us for our final field trip of 2019. We will be heading to the Tree Pittsburgh greenhouse Wednesday, October 23rd for a tour starting at 10:00 am. Tree Pittsburgh is located at 32 62nd Street, in upper Lawrenceville. You may recall that Joe Davish, from Tree Pittsburgh, came to educate us in May with his program on tree planting and pruning. We will meet to carpool from the lot in front of The Ashley Homestore on McKnight Road (across from Ross Park Mall) at 9:20 am. We will grab a bite for lunch after the tour – location TBD! As always, friends and family are welcome! A signup will be available at the October meeting. Questions? Contact Program Chair Kate Colville at (412) 736-2062 or email@example.com.
