BLUESKIN GARDEN CLUB

by Lesley Smith

The Blueskin Garden Club held its monthly meeting at the Waitati Hall on
Thursday 11 June 2009. As the Committee had not had a chance to meet
following the AGM we decided to have an informal evening sharing
memories of different gardens we had visited or had fond memories of.
A small number of members turned out for the meeting where we welcomed a
new member - Sue - who is living in Doctors Point with her family.

Different members shared their memories of visits to overseas gardens where
everything was laid out neatly. Some members spoke of the way they liked
their own gardens - wild and rambling - and other members told us of how
they associate different plants with different family and friends.

It was a very interesting evening with lots of the usual chatter
(interspersed with a bit of shaking of the body to the music from the dance
class which was being held in the Hall).

The best bloom competition was won by Glenys Clements with a beautiful blue
delphinium.

At this stage the July meeting has not been finalised so please watch out
for an email (or a phone call) regarding the details. New Members are always
welcome.
