Como Park visited by one member on a rainy day!!

I visited the Como Park Conservatory and Japanese Garden on Sunday, June 23. The morning had been rainy and remained heavily overcast yet the park was full of families. The Conservatory was as lovely and well kept as ever and the Japanese garden was peaceful and serene. There was a wonderful display of bonsai as well which is part of their permanent collection. Here are a few pictures including this amazing orchid.


Annual Plant Sale Saturday June 8

Saturday June 8 is our Annual Plant Sale to benefit the club and make possible all our activities.

We will start setting up at 6 am (sale officially starts at 8 am). We need folks to pick up plants at Kris's the night before or earlier if need be and you have a shady place to park the truck!! Becky may also need help transporting plants. Their phone numbers are in the printed Garden Club program.

Kris may also need more tables so if you have tables or sawhorses and plywood, give her a call.

If you can't come to setup, come to sell and/or to tear down and by all means come to buy!! Get first shot early or come at the end for half price left overs.  Tear down is a noon.

Hope to see you all there!!!

PS: Jim of Jim and Nori said they would make a pancake breakfast run for us!! And there is coffee and breakfast at TDawg's. We are in TDawg's parking lot again this year. Thanks TDawg's
