Don’t forget Barbara and I are hosting a “Magical Garden Party” and Rogers Park Garden Groupmembership meeting in the backyard of our home at 1431 W. Fargo, TONIGHT (Tuesday, August 26th) at 7:00 p.m.
Barbara’s magical garden is home to dragons, faeries, edible flowers, fruits and berries and all the magic any garden has to offer. We will be providing herbaceous cocktails and other liquid delights, along with a menu of small bites inspired by garden fantasy. The menu will set the tone for our special guests from Fat Blossom Farm (aGlenwood Sunday Market vendor).
Laurie Smith of Fat Blossom Farm will share their secrets for creating garden whimsies. Learn how to use material in your garden to create fanciful ornaments, ephemera and sculpture. And artist Kathy Dickhut will tell us about how she gathers herbs, dried flowers and other botanicals to fill custom potpourri sachets and curiosity cabinets.
Both presenters will offer samples of their products for sale!
The event is free to Rogers Park Garden Group members. A $5 donation is requested for other guests.
If you have never been to a Rogers Park Garden Group meeting, this is a wonderful time to begin. Your little gardeners are welcome to join you for this special evening. (In the event of rain, bring an umbrella for a garden tour and we’ll enjoy our cocktails, nibbles, and presentation indoors).
Barbara and I are looking forward to spending a delightful late summer evening with you.
