Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania will be holding its District II/III Annual Luncheon at the Double Tree - Hilton in Reading on September 11th. The host for this meeting is the Wyomissing Area Garden Club.
Brenda Aubert has arranged a trip to Chanticleer in Wayne, PA. Chanticleer has been called the most romantic, imaginative, and exciting public garden in America. The garden is a study of textures and forms, where foliage trumps flowers, the gardeners lead the design, and even the drinking fountains are sculptural. It is a garden of pleasure and learning, relaxing yet filled with ideas to take home.
