Mary Anna Davis started the Plant of the Month presentation by showing us the versatile Abelia, a bush with small fragrant flowers that makes a wonderful landscape plant. We also started our poinsettia sales! Please get your orders turned in by November 25th.
New members were presented with a pot of violas and welcomed to the club. They include Lyn Hubbard, Robin McKnight, Judy Murrah, Liz Redd, Linda Shook, and Jessica Shook.
We started the new year on September 21, 2011 with a flower arranging workshop hosted by Mississippi State University florist, Lynette McDougald. Lynette discussed the basics of flower arranging and everyone had a chance to work on some beautiful arrangements.
Lynette brought beautiful flowers and Garden Club members brought their own containers and greenery. What a fun start to the new year! This is good preparation for the mini flower show we will host in April.
