Redbud Garden Club meeting

The Redbud Garden Club held its November meeting on Nov. 19 at Geraldine Sanderson’s home with Jo Smith serving as co-hostess.

The elves had been busy decorating the house for Christmas. If you were not in the Christmas mood when you arrived — you were by the time you departed. The theme for the evening evolved around a plant swap. Members brought flower bulbs, houseplants and garden plants to share. Members had a choice of rabbit’s foot fern, stick plants, rudbeckia, columbine, cone flower, yarrow, daylilies, tulip, narcissus, and amaryllis bulbs.

Janet Higgins prepared an evening of fun and games which included a word search with flower names and gardening trivia.

The exhibits for the evening were “Watch Your Steps” and “Thinking Spring.” “Watch Your Steps” was a design using articles found in your yard. Winners were blue, Rebecca Giles, Mary Hazlegrove, Janet Higgins, Ann Ligon, Nancy Schaeffer, Sarah Schember; red: Dottie Fahrner.
