Moss Workshop and Demonstration




Moss Workshop and Demonstration by Theresa Hackworth and her
son Dan Hackworth had us all get inspired as we learned about the
many types of moss and what you can create.

They decorated a fish tank stand (see above) into a work of garden art which
even included a volcano. A slide presentation was given showing her many
moss garden projects.

Theresa displays her work in her garden, offers workshops and sells her
one of a kind designs. She is also able to come to your property
and make a very personal design for you.

Tamarra won a raffle prize and a bonus of having Theresa
make a designer moss garden pot.

What a great night.

Dan is a great helper as well as having a great mind for design.

As always great food

2017 Dec. Holiday Party

What a great time at Susan Cameron's home.
Catered food was so delicious, many second helpings by ..... a lovely holiday evening.
Happy Holidays!
Hello everyone,

Another great evening with the Horticulture Club of Newtown!    Last night was so much fun and a fantastic way to end our 2017 events.  First of all I would like to express my sincerest thanks to Susan Cameron for hosting the party at her beautiful and warm home, it was the perfect place to enjoy each other’s company, eat the delicious meal, sip a glass of wine and sit by the fireplaces.    I know you all feel the same as all I heard were happy exclamations from everyone as they were having their second helping of that amazing lemon mousse!  

I would also like to thank everyone for the extremely thoughtful gifts including the centerpiece, gift card, the cardinal ornament that is already hung by the chimney with care, and the vintage silver pin.   I love them all!   I would also like to thank John for the beautiful arrangement he made for me with the orchid, scarborough lily and false onion.   I do promise to give the vase back.  It is so pretty!  

It was wonderful to catch up with many that we don’t see very often, welcome previous members back and catchup on our busy lives.  Congratulations to Tom and Carol Johnson on the birth of their first grandson.  Maybe they will spend more time up north !

Michael and I would like to wish each and everyone a very Merry Christmas and a blessed, happy and healthy New Year !  

Joan
