Trip to Morningstar Perennials

On Thursday, July 14th, members of the Garden Club caravaned to Morningstar Perennials in Rockingham. While the weather didn't totally co-operate, we found it to be an interesting and charming experience. The owner and gardener-extraordinaire, Laurie (below), showed us her vast array of old, new, and unusual perennials (many of which have found their way to our gardens!).

The meeting was chaired by Barbara Whittaker (Maria is on vacation), and we discussed the various projects proposed by the Beautification Committee. It was decided to decorate the downtown area of Ludlow for the fall season - probably with corn stalks and other fall motifs. Marie Hasson graciously volunteered to coordinate this - and will need other volunteers!!! The second project will be to make new Christmas decorations for the Library Tree. Everyone agreed that an October workshop for this project would be great fun.

When the rains came, we thanked Laurie, hoped to come back and browse more thoroughly, and headed home.
