Ardith's Jottings.

The Durham Council of Garden Clubs is responsible for the September 23-24, 2012 State Board Meeting.  One of the events will be a White Elephant/Trash to Treasure table staffed by our wonderful,  willing District 9 Garden Club volunteers and laden with goodies donated by our Clubs.  To that end, I am asking that you donate any unwanted gifts you may receive during the Holidays or any items you may wish to clear out to make room for the great gifts you received.  We are looking for things in good condition or new, things that you would be willing to buy yourself or not be embarrassed to have your friends know that this was your donation!  The funds raised will help offset the expenses of the Meeting.  Our treasury is looking a tad anemic after our  support of the Briggs Avenue project, so we need your assistance.  Look around your house for items you no longer need and remember our White Elephant table.  Arrangers-this is a great opportunity to get rid of old containers or accessories you no longer use.  This is a chance to give yourself space for those new containers you desire.   Gardeners-divest yourself of those too cute garden things  some well meaning people have given you.  Remember one man's trash is another man's treasure.   Email me at apugh21419@gmail.com if you have any questions or if you have items to donate.

Just because it is cool does not mean we can forget about the new plantings we put in this Fall.   They still need moisture.  We need to supply what Mother Nature doesn't.  So keep checking for watering needs.
