Gardening Friends May Meeting

Sorry this is so late but I've been busy in the garden! Be sure to check the next newsletter for lots of info on our up coming events! If you live in Oswego County (or Jefferson or Onondaga) and are looking for a fun group to join check us out. Some of our members have super gardens and some of us are like me with my brown thumb.

We had a very good turn out. We talked about our Garden Tour which will be held on June 17th. Our next meeting will be on the 14th - mark your calendar and check the newsletter for the location! Be sure to pot up your plants and volunteer to help out. If you will be in the Pulaski area that day tickets are only $5 for 5 gardens. There will also be a plant sale and baked goods. Stop by the Pulaski Wesleyan Church on Rte 11 between 10 & 1. Leave a comment if you would like more info.

The president of the Oswego Garden Club was there to talk to us about having our own flower show. She explained how their show worked last year and gave us some great tips for staging our show in July. We will be modeling our show after theirs and holding it at the Pulaski Library, July 20th and 21st.

Each participant is asked to pick a book by the June meeting and then design a floral arrangement based on that book; they will be displayed together. What a neat idea! More than one of us can pick the same book, the librarian will get extra copies as needed. My past floral arrangements have consisted of shoving flowers into a vase and "fluffing" them. But this sounds like fun so I'll give it a try.

We will have our July meeting on the 19th at the library to set up. More information will be in the June newsletter and at the June meeting.

We also set a date for our Member's Tea. It will be Aug 5th. Check the July newsletter for the details.
