Interested in seeing some beautiful gardens?
The semi-annual Monroe County Garden tour will be held on June 24 10am – 4pm. On that day you have the privilege of peeking into the private sanctuaries of some amazing gardeners in the Stroudsburg area. The tour will start at Bryant Park in Stroudsburg and you can buy your tickets there for the entire tour. $10 for non members and $8 for members. 4 of the gardens are within a short walking distance of each other so you can just park your car and have a stroll in one of the loveliest parts of Stroudsburg.
The garden club year officially started with our Spring luncheon. This year we had a nautical theme and it was amazing! Held at the Stroudsmoor, everything was smooth sailing from the food to the installation of new officers to the Tricky Tray and auction. The Navy itself would have been proud of our organization and attention to detail.
A Friendship Garden…….
On May 24th some membrs of the club planted a Friendship garden at the home of one of our members, Carmen Costolas. We started out with a lovely brunch made by Carmen, then we took a tour of her gardens, featuring her amazing collection of Bearded Iris in full bloom. Then each of us planted a variety of perennials that we had brought in a special area that Carmen had already prepared. It was a lovely day and a lovely time with good friends.
