Gabbing at the Gazebo - July's Meeting

It was hot.  So hot, we decided to move the meeting out to the Highlands Park gazebo.

Every breeze was welcomed as we talked about club business and our gardening challenges.

One challenge in particular: With all the heat, Marie's garden has bloomed early, so what could fill the gap between now and October?  Our group brainstorm came up with: delphiniums, roses, sunflowers, grasses, asters, sedums, fireweed, rudbeckia ("Prairie Sun" in particular") and echinacae.

There was also some good news: Lori and Gisele have been nominated for Front Yards in Bloom!

Though a number of members were going to zip away for summer vacation, we made some concrete group plans:

1. A trip (suggested by Johanne) to George Pegg Botanic Park on the 25-July-2015. Meet 9 a.m. at the Community Hall car park to car pool to there.

2. Next meeting (12-August) to be held at Margaret's!
