We will be meeting at the Norman P. Murray Center on Friday, May 20, 2022, beginning at 9am. Our meeting will include signups for our June luncheon, raffle, cuttings table, horticulture presentation and refreshments.
Our special speaker this month will be Teresa Byington. Teresa Byington loves to dig in the dirt and gets plenty of opportunities to do just that as she cares for her large cottage garden which consists of about 150 roses. She is an active member of the American Rose Society and Indianapolis Rose Society. Teresa will be presenting remotely via GoToMeeting. Teresa’s garden, Bloom Thyme Cottage Garden, is a large cottage garden that weaves together her love of roses - from the oldest to the most modern shrubs and their garden companions. Roses alongside annuals, herbs, shrubs, trees, perennials, and veggies fill this garden. Teresa's garden was recently featured in Garden Gate Magazine's January edition!
