Many of us lost some of our most beloved trees, bushes, palms, and plants this year. As Spring has unfolded, it is so refreshing to see some of our plants come alive that we thought were dead. I hope we all take time to sit outside, take a deep breath and enjoy our surroundings!
In an attempt to get to know people better and foster a close knit group, I am gonna share some personal hobby information about one of our members each month. I am beginning with the person who introduced me to the Garden Club. she is one of the friendliest people you will ever meet.
Sallyann Nevins, member since 2009.
Sallyann has a very crafty hobby that she has agreed to share with us.
She is a maker of quilts. Sallyann starting making them because a friend introduced this to her and taught her how. How does she start a project, you ask? Sallyann goes to the fabric store (which she says is so much fun), and she picks out fabrics that look pretty. Not surprisingly, our friend is on a first name basis with the salesperson Mary. She gets home with her new batch of lovelies and lets the inspiration flow. Making lap quilts is her favorite because she can bless more people with her gift and, they are easier to sew with her machine. When asked about a favorite one of her current group, she could not pick. She said “They are all my favorite in one way or another”. When asked her feelings about being in the garden club, she responded, “I absolutely love the garden club and everyone in it. I have been many officers and enjoyed them all”. Sallyann, you are one of the first people new members meet and you are always there with a lovely welcoming smile and a kind word. We love you too!
Here are some lovely ladies who worked hard this year to share our love and Christmas greetings with those in our community who need some help! Thanks for all who participated in the stocking collection for Sharing Life!
Here are pictures sent by Maud Hay of the Christmas present delivery at the Memory Care facility.

Ginny Hale’s preparation for planting Daffodils and Tulips 12/9-10/20.
I forgot my previous order with Breck’s and responded to Super Saks offers. Dismayed to see 4 boxes arrive with 395 Daffodils, 105 Tulips, 37 Asiatic Lily mixture and Orange Ton Lilies. Realized I had 537 bulbs to plant in December in 7 small beds. Now I have 12 established gardens and added Daffodils to the 4 ft. tower in the middle of the back yard. Made 3 trips to Home Depot for dirt and compost $135. Hired my gardener to handle the project. So pleased!! Received three adjustments that week from my Chiropractor for my back and hip joint pain.
