Encanto Garden Club
September's Encanto Garden Club meeting started with a short report of the Curry County Fair flower show the club sponsors every year. The flower show received more entries this year than last, with the consensus that the weather was somewhat better considering the heat in the later part of the summer. One entry that did not fare well was the rose. Many of the public stated that their roses did not do well in the heat this year. We were very delighted that the coolers were fuller with entries in the adult and junior divisions. Our judges this year were Traci Franklin from Traci's Greenhouse and Charles Guthals from Guthals Nursery. It was an informative and fun day of judging for all involved.
Our next meeting will be 9:30 a.m. Oct. 10 at Muffley's Back Room. Anybody interested in joining or attending a meeting is welcome. Contact Jacque Wuest at 762-6955.
