UPCOMING EVENTS – A MESSAGE FROM THE GILDMISTRESS

Is our wonderful October meeting still as fresh in your mind as it is in mine?   What good time we had!  I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of your bulbs in bloom come January, and I’ll share whatever you send.  The same holds true for whatever images you may send me of those gorgeous arrangements you made!  Our heartfelt thanks go out again, to Betty O’Regan for sharing her excellent ideas and (so many) materials, and to Tom Borkowski for his generous help with potting.  We even learned that bulbs can be planted in vertical layers to create larger bunches of blooms!
 
I hope you are enjoying our cool November weather as much as I am!  (it’s always been one of my eight favorite months!)  You know, every year I look forward to these grey skies and fresh winds, hoping for snow.  We may get some snow here on Tuesday — hope so!

 

November 18th Meeting – 7:30 PM Arden Gild Hall
Meanwhile, our November meeting is coming right up, and we are very eager to see and hear Lorene Athey’s presentation, “Winter Survival and the Birds in Your Backyard“.  Lorene comes to us from the Delaware Nature Society, another of our outstanding, nearbyresources for everyone who loves native plants and gardens.  Her program will help all of us who sincerely want to help our feathered friends, especially in light of the enormous and scary bird losses our world has been experiencing over the past several decades.
 
I’m looking forward to seeing you all, no matter the weather, at 7:30 PM on Monday evening, November 18, in the Lower Gild Hall!  We will offer refreshments as always, and our company.
 
All the best, as always,
