The Luray Garden Club met today and our speaker was Jack Price, Garden Naturalist who spoke to us about Pollinators for our Plants. A most eye opening presentation for sure! Enjoy some photos of our meeting. Several photos show Rose Ann Smythe sharing details on decorating Gourds for the Festival of Spring. Members took home some gourds to try their hand at creating a special item. Look for our booth on May 5 at the Festival of Spring.
If you want some ideas for decorating your gourds here is a handout with some and some graphics you could adapt.
