Garden Club of Taos

Celebrating 70 Years of Beautification and Horticultural Education in Taos County

Monthly Newsletter

March 2019


Finally - May is here.

If the display of fruit tree blossoms is an indicator, we will see an abundance of lilac blossoms as well.  Hopefully right in time for the Lilac Festival, May 17-19.  My favorite "Lilac Viewing Drive" is Lund Avenue, the alley between Placitas and Hinde.  What is yours?

Our monthly meeting is back to the usual third Thursday of the month, May 16th, at the Quail Ridge/Taos Tennis meeting room.  Lori Priest will be presenting "Gardening with Succulents", and pass on her depth of knowledge and gardening experience.

Preparations for the annual Garden & Home Tour are ongoing.  Volunteer sign-up sheets are starting to fill up.  Many more docents and parking attendants are needed.  If you have not had the opportunity to view the options and sign-up, please do so at the upcoming meeting.  Your help is always appreciated.

As part of the promotion for the Tour, the Taos Library Lobby window is featuring the purpose and activities during the existence of our organization's 70 years.

I look forward to seeing you on the 16th.
