Garden Club winding down seasonal activities

Fall means we will be wrapping up many of our activities - and maybe we will get a little rest? Not!

Garden Club members gather around their decorative planters on Seventh Avenue. The energetic group recently placed their scarecrow decorations in the downtown planters. The Garden Club’s initial placement of the figures last year was well received by the community. In photo are

What. Is summer over?

Well it was nice while it lasted. For us it all starts in spring when Garden Club members not only plant their own gardens but also share some of their know-how and energy by planting flowers in the planters of downtown Keremeos and also the Info Center flowerbed. Now in early October we have not had a hard frost, so there are still plenty of blooms to be seen, but the sight of scarecrows is a sure sign that fall has arrived.

Fall means we will be wrapping up many of our activities – and maybe we will get a little rest? Not!

It’s the start of other activities like harvesting, preserving, cultivating the soil for next year. I think we should also get cooking as soon it will be time to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Like last year, we are “planting”scarecrows in the downtown flower planters for two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. Garden club elves put them to bed at night for safe keeping and get them up again in the mornings.

 

Happy fall to you all. Angie Morin, President of the Similkameen Garden Club
