We’re Back!

The Garden Club started up its regular Wed @ noon monthly meetings again today (we break for the summer). I could only stay for the mixer + business meeting part before heading back to work, but the food was delicious (pesto-mayonnaise on the sandwiches was inspired, and that chocolate cake, yum), and Kathy English donated a host of dahlias and other gorgeousness from her garden.

SO SO PRETTY.

The speaker that I had to miss was going to talk about herbs, which looked really interesting. Next month will be a talk abut the do’s and don’t’s of putting your garden to bed — link to schedule in the comments. All are welcome to Garden Club meetings — you don’t have to be a paid member.
