AUGUST 2015 MEETING
Westminster Garden of Club Member Glenda W.
THURSDAY, AUGUST 20th
6:30 p.m.
Westminster, CO
As most of you know, FROG’s summer meetings take us to see some really great metro area gardens. Some are community or public gardens and some are the gardens of our own FROG members, or we sometimes enjoy private tours of gardening-related businesses.

The best fun of these summer meetings is combining the garden tour with a won-derfully-social (and yummy!) al fresco dining experience. FROG doesn’t plan the food—it’s totally a potluck with everyone bringing food to share with the others. And these potlucks are a great time to seek-and-share gardening tips!

You are welcome to bring a guest—friend, family member or perhaps a gardening pal! FROG provides drinks and some disposable plates, flatware and cups—but most of us go-green by bringing our own plate, utensils & cup. It often helps to bring a folding chair.

In August, we will be touring the suburban garden of FROG Club member Glenda W.  Glenda's garden is a mature suburban lot with peach trees and low water plants. Front yard has a hell strip that is watered once or twice a season. Her sprinkler system is not functioning so she is a hose dragger. The good thing is that the lawn is only watered when stressed. She has a rock garden, roses and a vegetable garden in her backyard. She states, “My yard is a reminder that no landscape is complete. It is a living breathing being and constantly changing.”

Please see the Club newsletter for the address and directions.
