The August GCGC get together was at Rose Ford’s new home.
It was wonderful to see her new garden that she and her hubby
have been putting together this summer. 20 members arrived
and enjoyed socializing. Of course, all the snacks were wonderful.
We talked about meeting at Laura’s for our Sept 11 meeting and
more info will come out on the Blossom and on the website.
Sept 8th is the first meeting of the Ft. Myers Council’s meeting.
The program is “The Benefits of House Plants”.
There is car pooling from the CVS east of 75, south on Corkscrew.
Let Anina know if you would like to join of the Car pool.
Need to leave by 8:10 am and home by 1pm.
Enjoy the pictures.

Included in these Council meeting photos are the slides on ‘Tillandsia’ that Tony Mauriello would have delivered at our Oct. 10 meeting which was canceled due to Hurricane Ian.
Kathleen Forsman submitted pictures of plants and flowers on her lanai and in her garden. Kathleen mentioned: “We ate the fourth generation pineapple and it was perfect!”. She included a picture of the pineapple plant.
