The flowers of summer are fading but the planters and the baskets on Kings Highway are bursting with blooms. Now is the time to look forward to the Fall and all its glory and the trees of Haddonfield turning beautiful shades of yellow, orange, russet and scarlet as the coller weather passes through our lovely town.
We also look forward to the return of our garden club activities: Flowers in the Haddonfield Library, our Hospitality Groups preparing food for the meetings, caring for the Pocket Gardens, Christmas in the Library and Professional Programs to stir us to new gardening and flower arranging adventures. We have a delightful bus trip planned to view and enjoy an 18th Century farmstead in Bucks County -- Hortulus. And best of all, getting together with friends to enjoy life with all its laughs and tears.
Fall and winter are when we enjoy planning our gardens for the next year, including viewing gardens, reading gardening books and magazines and talking with our Garden Club friends about what they are considering for their gardens.
Yes, we have wonderful plans for the 2014-2015 year of the Haddonfield Garden Club.
