Redbud Garden Club’s January meeting held

The Redbud Garden Club held its January meeting at the Prince Edward County Library. Dr. Cynthia Wood was the speaker for the evening.

Woods spoke on using herbs for seasoning foods and provided multiple soups to sample and different desserts to taste. Everyone enjoyed the pound cake and the chocolate gluten-free brownies she provided. It was interesting to see how herbs could enhance flavor to otherwise plain foods.

Exhibits for the evening were, “A Pot of Winter Charm,” which was a favorite house plant and, “A Most Important Month,” featuring a horizontal design using designated silk flowers of the exhibitor’s birth month.

Blue ribbon winners for “A Pot of Winter Charm” were Ann Ligon, April McBride, Patsy Miessler, and Nancy Schaeffer. The red ribbon winners was Geraldine Sanderson. Janet Higgins won a yellow ribbon.

Blue ribbon winner for “A Most Important Month” were Mary Hazlegrove, Ann Ligon, Nancy Schaeffer, Sarah Schember and Jo Smith. Red-ribbon winners were Rebecca Giles and Janet Higgins. Horticulture exhibitors were Rebecca Giles who earned two blue ribbons and one red ribbon. Ann Ligon received one blue ribbon and one red ribbon. Nancy Schaeffer earned six blue ribbons.
