The sasanquas are blooming and so let’s have some fun!
Enjoy an afternoon of fun in a beautiful setting.
Wish you knew the name of your favorite camellia?
Bring a bloom or blooms and we will have a mini camellia exhibit.
Do you have extra camellias or companion plants you would like to swap for someone else’s favorite
– bring those too.
Each fall we gather together to catch up on summer activities, plans in the garden,
good food and a chance to share/swap plants we all love. All that is required is YOU!
But if you want to share your favorite sauvignon, salad, saucy chicken bites, sugar cookies,
potted sasanqua, or ?? – you get the idea.
