Hints of fall are in the air, and the Sharon Garden Club is celebrating on September 9th with our September Garden Medley fundraiser. Join us from 11-4 to explore the learning and fun at our two locations :
a horticultural guided garden tour (70 Maskwonicut Street, Sharon)
a Standard Flower Show (62 Bullard Street, Sharon)
an elegant boxed lunch in the garden (70 Maskwonicut Street, Sharon)
You’ll probably find me in a stall at the barn at 70 Maskwonicut Street, the stall converted into an art exhibit for pollinator-friendly plants and a jail for nasty butterfly-killing invasive ones. WANTED: native pollinator plants, alive; WANTED: dead invasive plants.
Artist (and beekeeper) Alison Clouster created this piece from a Eucalyptus tree that had come down in a big wind. The piece welcomes visitors at the Wellington Botanic Garden in New Zealand.
While the snow is blowing back in Easton, I have the delightful pleasure of visiting New Zealand this winter. Actually, it’s summer in New Zealand, all the better for a visit to the Wellington Botanic Garden. Love this sculpture by Alison Clouster. The subject is depicted in her beekeeper’s suit, and she’s looking out through the mask, where a bee has come to rest.
