What a beautiful day to enjoy the amazing homes and gardens at the Chautauqua Institute!
Jeff Griff of Lowe’s Greenhouse in Chagrin Falls (no connection to the Lowes stores) gave us entertaining stories about the development of various plants including the amazing history of the tulip.
Mark Langan of Mulberry Creek Herb Farm demonstrated how easy it is to create a charming miniature perennial garden. Nancy was the lucky winner of one of his creations!
Our 35th Greening Workshops were fun for our members and participants, many of whom have been coming for years. Groups of friends say this is a highlight of the season.
Everyone enjoys this annual service project meeting, making wreaths and mini-arrangements for local seniors and cancer patients.
A big thank you to the 23 members who completed all the tasks needed to prepare accessories for the Greening workshops – all while enjoying a chance to visit with old friends and getting to know new ones!
We enjoyed an interesting tour of this wonderful museum located within the Rocky River Library.
Photos from first meeting of the new year: A beautiful centerpiece, picking up the new yearbook, delicious lunch, and interesting talk on Conifers by our guest speaker, Bethany Majeski of the Rocky River Nature Center. Four new members joined!
