Upcoming Meetings

Don’t forget to check out the Garden Club’s renovation of the Clubhouse beds when you visit the beach — we planned a succession of blooms all season so there’s something new to see each day!

 

We always accept empty plant pots, red solo cups, and *plastic* venetian mini-blinds to cut up for plant tags for use in our plant sale.  Please drop either anytime in the driveway at 1121 River Bay Road.  Thanks for helping us to reduce and reuse!

THANK YOU, CAPERS, for coming out in droves to support our annual Plant Sale fundraiser — We are so grateful for your support!!!   You cleaned us out of milkweed within two hours!  We have already ordered more for 2018.
 THANK YOU for your generous and continuing support!  

July & August: Summer break, no meetings

Tuesday, September 5th, 7pm:  Welcome back, Sharing Garden Stories: What worked well this year?  Members will share photos and stories from their summer and gardens.

Tuesday, October 3rd, 7pm:  Speaker Gary Van Velsir on Wild Orchids + Cutting & Seed Exchange

Tuesday, November 7th, 7pm:  Arranging Garden Materials Workshop.  Members bring foliage, flowers, berries, and seed heads along with a dish to hold their arrangement.  Floral foam, flower food, and instruction provided by the Club.

Tuesday, November 29th, 7pm:  Evergreen Wreath Workshop.  Members bring evergreen cuttings in from their gardens and together we make wreaths for hanging in downtown Annapolis and right here in Cape St Claire.  Afterward, we enjoy a fun gift exchange.

All meetings are held in the Cape St. Claire Clubhouse meeting room (1223 River Bay Road, 21409) unless otherwise noted.  Questions?  Phone or email Catherine at 410-212-1944 or salca01@comcast.net.  New faces always welcome!  

What a fun and interesting morning we had touring some beautiful, hidden gardens in Cape St Claire!  We all felt inspired by all that we learned.  Afterward, we cooled off and enjoyed a marvelous potluck barbeque.  Thank you to all our Members who brought such delicious food to share, and especially to those dear neighbors who shared their gardens for the tour!

After weeks of planning, digging, planting, and watering, we are so pleased to have beautiful beds to show for our hard work.  The CSCIA Board of Governors expressed much appreciation for how lovely the Clubhouse now looks.  We thank them for all their support year after year for our Garden Club and all the Cape organizations, and we are grateful we can contribute to the beauty of our treasured Clubhouse.
Thank you all those who pitched in on this project, and especially Larry, who watered faithfully every few days.  Everything is growing in beautifully — we can’t wait to see it unfold over the season and in future years as everything matures.

Finished!

Another awesome crew — it’s amazing what a team of people can accomplish when we all pitch in!  THANK YOU to everyone brought their power and helped to MUSCLE this tree into the ground.  The root ball was 3′ wide, 2′ deep, but we DID IT!

River Bay side of the Clubhouse has foundation shrubs now!

Another great crew, another beautiful day, lots more laughing, lots more shovels, and voila!  The beds are starting to shape up!  Thank you to all who came out, got dirty, sang songs, and made the day so fun!

April 12, 2017: What a fantastic and productive work crew that showed up today to muscle and ‘dynamite’ out the fountain grass, liriope, daylilies, and vinca.  Look at how much we accomplished in ONE DAY — many shovels DO make light work!
THANK YOU EVERYONE who pitched in today: Becky, Tracy, Rose Mary, Jeanne, Janet, Kathy, Charlie, Roy, Cassia, and especially Larry, who stayed to the very bitter end!

We had a lovely gathering of 80 Cape and local folks for our documentary screening, along with amazing refreshments brought by the Members of the Garden Club and of Cape Conservation Corps.  Afterward, Director and Producer Catherine Zimmerman led an informative Q&A.  Thank you to all who attended!
Special thanks to Cape Ace Hardware who generously sponsored the entire cost of the event — we’re all so grateful!

The daffodils are up, the buds are bursting everywhere, but until winter goes away, feast your eyes on what is soon to come.  These beauties will all be at the Plant Sale on Saturday, May 20th, 8am-2pm, in the clubhouse field at Broadview Drive and Cape St. Claire Road.  (Rain date: Sunday, May 21st.)   No early birds, please!

Beautify your garden, support the environment, and enjoy a festive community event at the same time!  Thank you for your generous patronage all these years.
