Don’t Miss the AGM – November 15

Don’t Miss the AGM – November 15

Members of the Chester Garden Club are reminded that the club’s Annual General Meeting will be held on November 15 at St Stephen’s Parish Community Centre. The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm with a presentation by guest speaker Susan Mosher of Oceanview Garden Centre and Landscaping. The business of the AGM will follow, after a short break for refreshments.

After the four-day deluge of rain and strong winds that had residents of Chester and all Nova Scotia pondering plans for building an ark, the sun has returned. Despite the damage that results from such severe weather, some leaves remain to provide colour to the garden. The smoke bush (above) has deep cranberry-coloured leaves all summer and, fortunately, has retained its colour even after the storms.
One advantage of viewing a garden in which the trees have been stripped of leaves, is that we can see more clearly the robin’s nest that was in use this past summer.

For those who enjoy checking other garden blogs, we can recommend the November 12th posting on in which Todd Boland discusses the three species of red-twig dogwood. The shrubs are well adapted to Chester’s climate and are an attractive addition to gardens through all seasons.
