They were treated to a spectacular powerpoint presentation of June’s garden, presented by Bernard
Clark. The flowers were truly amazing and the photography superb. Members from the Culcairn Garden Club also joined the Henty people on this special day and presented them with a lovely birthday gift. A wonderful spread was provided by all members for all to enjoy, with savouries, sweets, punch and tea and coffee. The club had a very special birthday cake made for us by Ann. The decorations were all edible and it all tasted as good as it looked. The club also held raffles, lucky door prizes and the judged of the pumpkin competition
The successful pumpkin growers did a great job and all the pumpkins looked magnificent. 1st and 3rd prizes of the pumpkin were taken out by the girls, who are the youngest members of the club, and the 2nd prize was
taken out by our senior member Madge. The major raffle prizes were won by Margaret, Lila, Ian and June.The club would like to extend its thanks to those who attended and a very special thank you to Judy from Judy’s Bazaar for providing several beautiful potted plants for the pumpkin competition winners. If you’re ever on that side of the highway please pop into Judy’s Bazaar. You can browse for ages and will be sure to find a welcome.
Events coming up include a street stall in August, for which the club members are already busy potting cuttings and scouring recipe books.At the June meeting the club will be featuring the NSW floral emblem, the waratah. In July they will have a demonstration of flower arranging and jewellery to admire. In September there is a
combined bus trip with Culcairn to the Cowra Japanese Garden for the Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom
Festival. This is sure to be a sell out so please get in early to guarantee a seat, this will be a long day starting
at 6.30am and ending at 9.30pm. If you are keen on homegrown vegetables, the following are some of the favourites to be planting in May-June: Beans, peas, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, onions, garlic, leeks, radish and parsnips to name but a few. If you would like to learn more about plants, gardening or just to get to know the club’s fabulous members and have a chat over afternoon tea, the next meeting is on June 19 at
2pm at the CWA rooms, Lyne St Henty. The club is always keen to see some fresh faces and always
enjoy seeing the familiar ones. You can also now visit the club on the Henty Garden Club facebook page.
