Spring Flowers & Sunshine

While we are at home, doing our best to stay safe and healthy, be thankful for whom we have in our lives and the blessings that have been bestowed upon us.

Think what this would be like if it were the dead of winter, with snow and wind blowing.  We are grateful for the bounty of the spring flowers, and the ability of bring sunshine into our homes, and that we can get outside and work off some of our frustrations gardening.  

If you would like to share your work virtually, please send your pictures to ccmdgardenclub@gmail.com.

We've added a Blog!

We would like to share 

some happy visions of Spring with our friends!

The Charles County Garden Club took the step to have a meeting online using  Zoom since the state is under a "Stay at Home" order.  It was our first chance to try the technology to update the membership on what was happening with the Spring Plant Sale (which is rescheduled for June 27th).  In the meantime,  vegetable seeds that were started months ago will not be able to wait for that date , so we will come up with some way to get plants out to members that want them.      

Work is continuing on the Yearbook and the Fall Flower Show (held in conjunction with the Charles County Fair in September). And the website (ccmdgardenclub.org) is up and running.  If you have spring pictures to share, please do, by sending to the email at ccmdgardenclub@gmail.com

If you are out doing your essential tasks, you might want to drive by the Port Tobacco Courthouse and see our latest project. The grounds are beautiful.
