It May be January, But Gardens Are In The Air

Matilda's Tea

Matilda's Tea on Saturday, February 4 is fast approaching. Young ladies take home 2 large tea sachets, tea party invitations, a set of fancy teaspoons and some spiffy napkin folding techniques.

After this Tea, they'll be ready to host their own -- perhaps for Valentines Day! Tables are filling, so register now.

Blackburn Scholarship Tea

A very adult tea and topic await you at the Blackburn Scholarship Tea on Wednesday, March 28. Speaker Andre Fillipone is an accomplished garden designer and environmentalist. Her talk on sustainability and garden aesthetics is followed by delicious refreshments and an opportunity to purchase select garden antiques.

In the mood for some arts and crafts?

Need an adult play date? Come along and Create Your Own Mosaic Trivet on Saturday, February 18. Bring something personal to incorporate and really make it your own.

What a neat gift for a daughter or niece!

All About Ivy

If you think of ivy as a container filler or boring ground cover -- think again! Ivy is the STAR on Sunday, February 12. Ivy Society President Russell Windle can answer all your questions and has lots of star-quality cultivars too for sale.

Ivy is easy to propagate, so bring a friend to the program and if each of your buys a cultivar or two, you will soon double your collection!
