BLUESKIN GARDEN CLUB

By Daphne Henderson

In June the members met at the Blueskin Nursery Cafe for coffee and cake and a very interesting address from Sally Brown regarding her work as a landscaper and the development of her own garden. 

The winners that evening were:

Best bloom: Rowena Park 1st, Daphne Henderson 2nd and 3rd;

Best vegetable: Marg Meder 1st, Norma Dick 2nd, Daphne Henderson 3rd.

In July a garden workshop was held at the Warrington Hall, making bird feeders, decorative garden hangings, plant markers and mosaics applied to all manner of garden articles. The winner of the best bloom that day was Daphne Henderson, 2nd Lyne Carlyle, and best vegetable, Daphne Henderson.

In August, in recognition of Family History Month, club members are meeting at the foot-bridge in Erne Street, Waitati, at 10:30 am on Saturday, 10 August, and walking to the cemetery, where Glenys Clements will share her knowledge of the families and notable persons interred there. Members are asked to bring their own lunch as we will adjourn to Glenys's home for information on family research and web sites to utilise.

For the annual Spring Flower Show at Waitati Hall, entries will be accepted between 10.30 am and 1 pm on Saturday September  21 and open to the public from 11 am on Sunday 22 with the prize-giving at 2 pm.  Show schedules will be available shortly and published in September's Blueskin News.
