Denise Baier provided pictures from her summer garden. Regarding her Hydrangea pictures she said: “They say you can grow them in Florida I’m proving they are wrong.” With her Caladium pictures she said: “I really enjoyed and took notes regarding the lecture on Caladium. I thought maybe our members would like to see how you can enjoy the plants and their colors during the summer.” Click her to see her pictures.

*  Announcing our Summer Garden Visitations
We will have a delightful slate of GCGC members’ gardens to visit each month through the summer.  At our May 2022 meeting, we will announce the gardens we will be visiting.
* Supporting organizations through donations
In December, GCGC provided a Santa mailbox to a local school, so children through the third grade could mail their cards to Santa. GCGC will again donate to Camp Wichovia and a gardening book to our local school for introducing gardening to students.
