Up at the crack of dawn and over to Persimmon Hill Farm in Lampe, Missouri. We picked blueberries for a couple of hours and then relaxed in the restaurant with coffee, thunder muffins and blueberry cinnamon rolls. You can see the blueberry plants out the window of the restaurant. Some of us have returned to the farm several times this season.
In honor of National Garden Week and remembering the history of Garden Clubs, we donned our favorite 1950’s attire and feasted on a delicious lunch at Bombadil’s Cafe in Eureka Springs. The lunch was hosted by our Garden Club President Donna Grimes. Thank you, Donna!
The Mother’s Day Plant & Flower Sale was a huge success, in spite of the cold rainy start to the day. We would especially like to thank the awesome management of Sunfest Market in Holiday Island, AR, for letting us set up our sale there.
In collaboration with the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR, the Holiday Island Garden Club participated in an Arbor Day Program at Eureka Springs Elementary School, with a felt board presentation, book reading and tree planting.
In preparation for the Mother’s Day Plant & Flower Sale, Monica Kidwell taught us how to add bling to our flower arrangements. Thank you, Monica!
