Goodbye Winter: March Meeting

It is quite fitting that during our final meeting before spring kicks into high gear a spectacular image of  winter took the spotlight.

The Annual North Toronto Photo Show Night is always a popular event that showcases the many talents and interests of our members.  This year was no exception and, in fact, it produced a "first." Mary Audia's photo of a magical winter morning is the first picture at a North Toronto Photo Show to win first place in its section while winning both "Best in Show" and "Judge's Choice." Congratulations Mary and thank you to everyone who submitted entries.  It was a feast for the eyes.

A special thank you goes out to our guest speaker Trish Symons who yet again wowed us with her presentation.   In her talk "Mae Wests of the Garden," Trish gave us all some great advice on selecting plants that have presence, charisma and confidence, just like the American movie star and sex symbol.  Be sure to check out Trish's website for fabulous photos and garden advice.

With spring just days away and the first snow drops and crocus starting to appear, this is an exciting time of year.  As you turn your attention to your garden, remember that the first flower show of the year is coming up in April. Get those blooms ready. Glenn Brunetti will be joining us to speak about Edible Flowers and Herbs in the Garden. More details will be posted on the blog soon.

Until next time, happy gardening.
