This morning I went into town to check on something at the St. Michaels Woman’s Club. For a number of years I co-chaired the Grounds Committee with Joanne Buritsch. We “retired” several years ago but I love seeing the things we planted filling in. I was glad I had my phone with me to take photos.
- The nandina is loaded with red berries this year, a lovely contrast against the white callicarpa.
2. Oakleaf hydrangeas we planted ten years ago took a long time to get established, but are now putting on a show.
3. I am tempted to take some cuttings from these mums which come back every year. We used to cut them back but this year they are a sprawling gorgeous mess.
4. A spring and fall blooming azalea is providing a pop of color. I need to incorporate some of these in my garden which doesn’t have much color this time of year.
5. A redbud tree (Cercis canadensis) we planted is shapely and full of seed pods. The Woman’s Club of St. Michaels clubhouse is on St. Mary’s Square which is lined with historic houses. A click on the Woman’s Club website link will take you to a photo of the redbud in bloom.
6. The camellia bushes are full of buds and Solomon Seal left over from a Green Thumb plant sale at the club house have spread.
That’s my Six on Saturday, this week photos of the grounds at the Woman’s Club of St. Michaels. The meme was started by The Propogator, a UK gardener. This is the link to the rules if you’d like to join in.
