"We are commited to establishing roots in this community and watching them grow."
The Ingomar Garden Club was Established in 1946 as a philanthropic organization dedicated to the art of gardening, flower design, conservation of natural resources, enviromental protection and civic improvement. The club was federated in 1954. Meetings are the first Wednesday of the month, 10:30 am at St Johns Church, 311 Cumberland Rd., Pittsburgh, PA.Merry Christmas
Since we knew our program was going to cover "Invasive Species" members came prepared to confront Amy Jewitt with their invasive "cuttings". Amy oversees a database listing invasive species information for the PA Natural Heritage Program and the Western PA Conservancy.

Ruth Kirk oversees "Edith's Garden" at the Northland Library. These photos are from her garden. Obviously she is more than qualified. The butterflies certainly love it.
Annual Picnic July 3rd
Not every backyard looks like a park but our hostess, Eileen Miller has grandkids so besides beautiful gardens to enjoy we also had swings and a slide.
Following the club meeting lunch was provided by members who turned out to be gormet chefs. Marie Kazmierczak and her crew set up inside as rain was predicted. (but didn't) Our traditional plant auction with our traditional auctioneer Julie Barnes, ably assisted this year by Barb Oswald, was fun as usual. There is nothing to compare with "the good old summertime"
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,
