Welcome back! Our Sept. meeting will be held at 12:00, Tuesday the 23rd.  Helen Hamilton, member of the Virginia Native Plant Society and the Williamsburg Botanical Garden will present our program on" Bird Food". Helen will remind us that what we grow can make a difference in the health of the birds in our backyard. 
Our meeting will be a 'Pot Luck Luncheon'. 

The floral design theme will be "Sunflowers and Seeds"; a designers' choice of fresh and/or dried plant material, which incorporates sunflower(s). [More info on Floral Design Page.]

Remember to bring horticulture from your yard to exhibit at our meeting. [See Guidelines for Exhibiting on Horticulture page.] After judging, the horticulture will be moved to our tables and become beautiful centerpieces! 

It's not too early to think about Christmas! The deadline for ordering WREATHS and TREES is October 28, or when 100 orders are received. We are also 
offering WREATH KITS (to members only) so you can make your own wreath 
with greens you pick. Prices and other info is on Order Form.
