Tonight is the monthly Perennial Plant Society of Middle Tennessee meeting. It will be held at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and starts at 7 pm, with a social hour beginning at 6:30 pm. This month's meeting promises to be the best we've had in a long time. Allen Bush, owner of Holbrook Farm and Nursery in Fletcher, North Carolina will be the featured speaker. Some of the plants Holbrook Nursery have introduced you all too include 'Palace Purple' heuchera, lamium 'White Nancy', and stokesia 'Klaus Jellito'. The title of Mr. Bush's program is "Louisville to Lijian, Hither and Yon". It will include fun perennials Mr. Bush is currently working on in his garden.
The above picture shows four gardening partners on their way to last month's meeting. They include me (on the left), Gerianne, Diane, and Debbie. We are all in the same garden club and had a great deal of fun on girls night out in Nashville at Cheekwood last month. Unfortunately I will not be able to join my friends for this month's meeting.
The above picture is of a few special folks involved with the Perennial Plant Society and also with Nashville State Community College (NSCC). The tall guy on the left is Jim, the head of the Horticulture program at NSCC (I am currently enrolled in this program), the lady in the orange sweater is Carol, (a student at NSCC and classmate of mine), and the lady on the right is Lillian. Lillian is the current President of the Perennial Plant Society of Middle Tennessee. The event this evening was the award of a scholarship to Carol. Great job Carol and congratulations on your scholarship!
Hope you all come out to the meeting tonight and learn some new things going on in the plant world. This society is a real boon to gardeners in middle Tennessee and such fun!
