July 1st

Thank you, all who came out to the parade and cheered us on.
And huge thanks to the people who came out earlier, in the heat of the day, to our Garden Show.  Did you enter our Plant Challenge?

SDHS Garden Tour 2018 “Perennial” Plant Challenge

Garden 1: Centaurea dealbata ‘Rosea’ (Persian cornflower)

Garden 2: Corydalis lutea (yellow corydalis or yellow fumatory)

Garden 3: Hibiscus (hardy or perennial hibiscus)

Garden 4: Achillea millefolium (yarrow)

Garden 5: Macleaya cordata (plume poppy)

Garden 6: Aruncus dioicus (goat’s beard)

Garden 7: Lychnis chalcedonica (Maltese cross, Jerusalem cross)

Garden 8: This one is a ringer – not a perennial! It is Laurus nobilis (bay laurel), a shrub or tree.

B. Sippel, Stratford, was the winner of the draw for the hanging basket. Congratulations!

Come see us!
