Our Next meeting will be Tuesday June 11th, 2013
PLANT SWAP AND BUSINESS MEETING
HSSJ will hold its Plant Swap at our June meeting. This is a very enjoyable evening at which you will receive one raffle ticket (you only need one). Numbers will be called on a rotational basis so that everyone’s number should be called three times.
The plants are set out on the tables at the back of the room and grouped (loosely) together in categories. Several people will be at the back of the room together selecting plants at the same time. Let’s not have a tug of war, shall we?
Please plan to bring in and to share with other club members 3 to 5 of your extras. Please do not transplant from your garden the same day! No one appreciates a plant suffering from transplant shock. Plan for a relaxing, fun evening of sharing some of your things as well as walking out with perhaps something brand new to you. This is truly the way we learn!
Spring Flower Show winners will be announced and Best of Show presented that evening. The Executive Board for the 2013-2014 season will be installed. A scholarship will be presented to a high school senior. Thank you Marilyn Greenberg and Peggy Wysocki for your hard work on this project.
Finally spring is peeking around the corner
SPRING IS HERE
Ah yes, it is slowly getting a bit warmer
Spring day had come two weeks ago
Yet how come we still had some snow?
Now old man winter did not want to leave us
So it showed it could still stir up a big fuss
But flowers are starting to bloom
Filling the air with heady perfume
Hyacinths and daffodils you see every where
And there is a forsythia in bloom over there
The pussy willows have already turned yellow
Their early fuzzy catkins make you feel mellow
Soon many other flowers will be showing
Let us pray there will be no more snowing
Yes spring has finally come to stay
And cold winter, for now, has gone away
