July Meeting at Margaret's: Business in the Front, Blooms in the Back
Slightly overcast skies hinted at storm, but we were lucky -- the meeting wasn't rained out and we had plenty of time outside again to explore Margaret's garden.
This time (a month earlier than last year), the kale was a little less monstrous and a different set of flowers were in bloom.
Happy bees buzzed around as we checked out some native beauties in the far far back -- no space wasted, flowers and plants right into the alley!
We later convened back to the front yard to enjoy tea and treats.
We discussed upcoming events: The tour of Wilf Maul's acreage is on! Also of interest is Alberta Open Farm Days at Northlands on Aug.21st. There will be farm tours, demonstrations of honey harvesting, and talks on beekeeping, keeping chickens, and backyard farming.
