Society Meeting for May 28


Christine Gill, the Delphinium Lady was awesome. She had a very interesting talk and great advice about growing delphiniums. She told us that the plants we buy come from California and the stock is not as resistant as the delphinium stock that we used to get from England.

We tried a different format for the meeting with the speaker starting at 7:00 and breaking for 15 minutes after the speaker was finished and then continuing with the business part of the meeting. The response to this format was very positive and so we will continue with this in September


This month, the mini-show had entries in only one category: ‘A miniature design using fresh flowers’.

As customary, the entries were judged by the members present at the meeting: Pat Stuckey [left image below] came first, with Angela Palmer second [centre], and Mary Jenkins took third place [right].
