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.

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.

Every spring the Garden Club celebrates our Club’s founding in 1975.  In March of 2017, we turned 42!
A nourishing potluck, lots of spring-blooming plants for our plant raffle, gardening friends young and young-at-heart, and a slide-show of the newest Northcreek eye-candy coming to the May Plant Sale.  What more could a bunch of gardeners want to shake off the winter hibernation?
