October Message

10/01/2021 23:00

Greetings Garden Friends, 

This is probably my favorite time of the year – with the cool nights, low humidity, but warm sun. I’m looking forward to the colorful foliage that will be soon coming our way, and enjoying the additional pop of color that pumpkins and gourds, mums, and asters provide this time of the year. This is a great time to visit garden centers and pick up bargains on trees, shrubs, and perennials what will respond well to the current temperatures and moistur. Ornamental grasses also shine right now, as well as hardy annuals like zinnias and marigolds.

At the October meeting we will learn about Dish Garden Diversity from Joni Kappler, previous owner of Ashley’s Floral Expressions. You don’t want to miss it! This is the program rescheduled from September when we were rained out and had to meet by ZOOM. Thanks to all of you for your flexibility that morning! Crossing my fingers for a beautiful day Wednesday October 6th.

Our next Board Meeting will be at the home of Julie Barnes on Wednesday, October 13th. Mark your calendars! 

Take time to enjoy these gorgeous fall days, feeling the cool breezes and soaking up the fabulous colorful display that nature offers us. Enjoy the time spent in the garden, strolling the neighborhood, or maybe on a trail out in the woods. The days will go by quickly, so take the time to appreciate them! Celebrate fall!
