What a wonderful day Saturday turned out to be! We had over one hundred visitors come to our event who helped us celebrate 60 wonderful years of gardening in Brookfield.
GARDEN TOURS were a big hit and the main event of our day. Six neighbors in town (3 members of the club and 3 non-members) opened their gardens for self-guided tours. Lots of questions. Lots of oohs and aahs. Lots of photo taking. Thank you to our garden hosts!
We also had a lot of activity going on at our Museum Garden in town. This garden is the largest civic garden that club maintains. On Saturday it was host to a Plant Show-off event and a Garden Boutique.
PLANT SHOW-OFF – Members and friends submitted favorite specimens from their gardens which were voted for by a people’s choice balloting. Congratulations to our winners.
And here is a selection of other show-off submissions along with our trusty volunteers.
GARDEN BOUTIQUE – Shoppers came by to support our sale of new and gently used garden themed items. Puzzles, artwork, vases, planters, dishes, baskets. Something for every collector and gardener!
Thank you to all our visitors and supporters. We truly appreciate that you spent this special day with us.
