October Message

Greetings Garden Friends, 

How I love the different seasons but my absolute favorite is autumn. Farewell to summer as green foliage changes into vivid hues of reds, oranges, and yellows. It is a breathtaking sight no matter how often you have seen it. Take in the beauty. Now, cooler temperatures make the garden chores of planting, dividing, and cleaning up of vegetable or flower beds far more comfortable. In September, we had a pleasant Beechwood Farms trip. Favorable conditions enabled us to tour and discover proper seed collection from native plant varieties. A Pittsburgh Botanical Gardens guided tour of woodlands or diverse gardens should bring further awareness to indigenous plants too. 

Looking forward to October, we are back at Northmont where we will be hosting Greybrooke, Shaler, Southern Butler County and Longvue Acres Garden Clubs at our luncheon/ program featuring creative designer, Janet Woloszyk, from McCandless Floral. Let"s keep meeting reports brief in order to afford more time for our guests. Welcome them. Offer places at your tables and have fun. A field trip to The Enchanted Olive should captivate senses with a relaxing lunch at the Log Cabin afterward. This is also the same day as the Boscov fundraiser if you can still offer support. Finally, there is an October 26th, 10 am Board Meeting at my home.

 “Be an observer in all seasons, your garden has something new and wonderful to show every day.”

 “Happy Trowels,” 

Julie, Your President
