Donna Bergmann did a delightful and informative presentation on Whimsy in the Garden. It included a wonderful planting of sedum and other plants using a birdcage. There was also a segment on how to plant a vertical plastic bloom bag that you can hang on walls and fences. They have been all the rage the last few years and knowing how to plant your own is a big money saver.
January birthdays were celebrated with a raffle of a cute garden mug filled with Hershey kisses. Thank you for your generosity, Alice.
Garden Club has been working under the golf course manager’s direction on an area of the golf course that came to our attention as a result of a request of a homeowner. The area leading up to the tee on hole 15 and adjacent areas that are HOA will be addressed in this joint project. Rick will have his crew begin work on January 12. The area leading up to the tee will be dug out and planted. Garden Club will provide boulders and plants, most of which will be repurposed from other areas and augmented with some purchased barrel cactus. The exposed pump pipes will be covered with a faux rock and the concrete block low building will be covered by leftover rocks that were used to face the bridges etc. This area presents a wonderful opportunity to turn a neglected and unattractive area into a delightful area of common and golf course property.
Plans are taking shape for the February luncheon and the March Tour of Homes. If you know of someone who has done something different in their home and might be interested in being on the tour please contact Donna Bergmann at 503-929-9657.
Guests are always welcome at the meetings held in the Ballroom at 9:00 a.m. on the second Friday of the month.
