Civic Garden Club of San Carlos-Apr 2016

Message from the President

“April Showers Bring May Flowers”. This year it may be true, as we have had a few nice rainy spells in March and we are optimistic that April will bring more of the same. My yard is coming back to life and I am glad that I didn’t take out plants that were not performing well last summer because they are turning green with new healthy growth. Caveat: Beware of underground wires in your garden. We found a wire about 8 inches down in the middle of my front yard that was not protected by a covering that connects my timer to the sprinkler valve. My gardener installed a new wiring against my sidewalk.

Did you enjoy last month’s the new feature in our Newsletter, “Club Members Gardens”? This month we will be featuring Renate Kemper’s garden. Don’t forget to take pictures of your favorite areas of your garden or plants and send to me, or call Edd Dundas to take the pictures for future issues of our Newsletter.

We will be voting on By-Law changes at our April Members Meeting and changes in the size of the Nomination Committee, see page 6 for details. Also, our Nominating Committee will announce the candidates for offices that are available for the next fiscal year. Nominations can also be made from the floor.

Don’t forget our Spring Plant Sale on April 23. Bring your plants for sale to Casa or call Tom for pickup. That’s the news for this month. Enjoy the Spring growing season.
