Merry May Meeting - May 29, 2017

Our next meeting will be on Monday May 29, 2017 at St George the Martyr Church, 197 John St at Stephanie and John Streets. The meeting will be in the FELLOWSHIP ROOM.

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE MERRY MAY MEETING?

Merry is the theme of this last meeting of the season. 

  • Arrive early and enjoy a stroll in St. George’s garden, which is one of the Hort-funded garden projects.
  • Refreshments, as usual, will be available in the kitchen.
  • Raffle tickets will be sold for your chance to win items that include a gardener’s gift basket, books, a purse and gift certificate from Home Hardware. Purchase tickets at the meeting to win—$2 for one or $5 for three. 
  • The Spring Flower Show. Enter your design or simply enjoy the show.
  • Digital photos will be presented by Hort members for your enjoyment. Clement Kent will present Sights and Sounds of Spring, a video medley he created that includes birds, bees, flowers, rushing springs, crickets, frogs, butterflies and 90 year-old jazz recordings. Abby Bushby will present photos of delight, showing the children’s tulip planting and parade to the Dundas Roncesvalles Peace Garden. 
  • The Trivia Quiz will have you answering unusual horticultural questions in exchange for a prize.
  • The Hort’s popular Garden Gloves will be available to purchase in time for your summer gardening days.
  • Awards will be announced and presented. Congratulate your fellow Hort members.

The Flower Show Theme: Fair Enough

That acclaimed highlight of the horticultural season, the Plant Fair, has provided many of us with wonderful additions to our gardens. For this year’s Flower Show (another highlight, needless to add) create a composition using plant material all, or in part, sourced from our Plant Fairs over the years. Please have your arrangements set up for judging (and our admiration, bien sur!) by 6:30pm. All plant material used must be from your own garden. Happy spring!
