September 12th 2019 – GROWING PLANTS FOR A REASON
Edwina Hughes was our guest speaker for the evening demonstrating and talking about her passion for growing plants to enhance her love of fabric design. It was truly amazing to see the vibrant range of colours that could be created from garden plants and trees, and how just one plant can produce so many different colours depending on the treatment.
The tea girls!!! Pat and Tracy and Beryl served up some delicious eats especially some amazing Anzac cookies made from Margaret Harbury’s recipe. Fabulous cooking Pat, and so nice to be reminded of a lovely lady. Thank you.
