This is where we're headed
But in the meantime here is where we are---"diggums."
Members in late March brought cuttings, perennials, bulbs, you name it, and we potted them up. Some are real treasures from bygone days.
Crimpson Iris, Yellow Foxglove,Vareigated Geraniums, Verbascum Southern Charm, White Sparkler Gaura, Galeux d'Eysine Pumpkin, for openers.
This year we are adding, along with the table-of-used-gardening-treasures, a Crafters Corner. Take a peek.
Original hand painted pots and rocks. Signed by the artist. (will post other crafts as they come in)
Ingomar Garden Club Plant Sale 2017
May 13-----8am till 3pm----corner of Route 19 and Ingomar Road-----rain or shine
The members take a break from meetings during January and February for obvious reasons. Instead they find some "swell" place for lunch. January the place of choice was
Hines Ward Table 86 in seven fields.
February 1, they will head for
Seib's Pub. Leave shovels at home. On second thought bring them in case of snow.
A great choice An Irish Pub
Christmas At The Phipps
As I write this there is a blanket of snow on the ground, the
roads are clear and the skies are blue. I have a fire burning
in the fireplace and an evergreen decorated for Christmas in
the corner. That's what I was hoping I would see when I
opened my eyes this morning! Instead I have a layer of
leaves still covering my yard. Fall does go on for a few more
weeks, then we can welcome winter officially.
I'm looking forward to sharing the holiday season with you
at our luncheon at Shannopin Country Club. Remember to
bring a gift if you would like to participate in the gift
Kate has set up Lunch outings for January and February,

the month winner, garden admirer, or your mom/daughter
