Welcome back to a new season of Garden Club! I hope your summer was filled with family, fun and flowers. I was inspired to work on a shady section of my yard after a June visit to a shade garden in Gainesville with Club members Stacey Reeder, Linda Sheedy, and Valerie Karas. The FFGC short course was filled with great lectures, demonstrations and new information. Check out our website to see some pictures of the garden tour. All of this ties in nicely with our first program in September, “Bring Nature Home.” Interesting!
And while there is always much to be grateful for, my heart is sad we’ll commence our season without Wilma and Bettye. These two uniquely special ladies have left an imprint on each of us, with a reminder that grace, wit and humor is a wonderful love language to share with others.
Looking forward to seeing each of you at our first meeting!
