BLUESKIN GARDEN CLUB

by Lyn Hastie

Blueskin Garden Club members spent a cold, wet July Saturday doing a mosaics workshop. Fourteen ladies smashed, cracked, planned and glued a variety of bits of tile, glass, buttons, etc. onto items of their choice. Look out for flash new letterboxes, rapid numbers, bird baths, balls, mirrors and a watering can. As always, they enjoyed each other's company over shared food and drink. They will get together again soon to complete their works with grouting. Special thanks to Liz and Jim for their hospitality.

Our August meeting will be held on 9th at 7pm in the Blueskin Nursery Cafe. Here we will learn about rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, etc. under the guidance of Mark Brown and David Sumpter. We will learn how to categorise them for our spring flower show in September; this will be of interest to lots of our members. Dessert and coffee will be part of the evening. If you would like to join us, feel free to come along. Interested in joining us? Phone Lyn on 482 2896 or Lyne on 482 2822.
