Mandarin Garden Club Plant Exchange
On Saturday, September 6th, the Mandarin Garden Club held a plant exchange. Members of the club brought plants, gardening accessories, garden art, books, and magazines. With a crowd of 50 or more ladies and gents, the exchange was quite lively! Might I even say rowdy???
Watching the members jockey for position, and laying hands on their first choice was quite entertaining. Some were discreet, and some were bold in marking their territory.
The plant exchange takes me back to a time when guests to our homes always left with a “cutting” in hand for their garden. Watching our Exchange plants grow or making use of the garden accessories will be a constant reminder of the friends we have made at the Mandarin Garden Club.
Many thanks to Becky Bathen and Mary Forester for their organization of this fun event and the memories we made.
