Beat the winter 'blahs'
When the “winter blahs” set in, somewhere around the end of January, you may start thinking about something to do, something to get you out of the house and spark your interests. Why not consider attending a meeting of the Westlake Garden Club?
The club’s first meeting of 2014 is Wednesday, Feb. 19, at 11 a.m. at Westlake Porter Public Library. The general meeting is followed by lunch and an interesting program on “Nature Journaling.” If you have thought about starting a journal to record activity in your garden/yard, please join us to explore the many ways of starting and keeping a nature journal. No special skills are needed, just an interest in watching and recording nature evolve as the seasons change.
We are finalizing our program schedule for 2014 and promise some very interesting and educational programs and speakers. With a sprinkling of field trips and workshops, 2014 promises to be an exciting year for the garden club. We will also check the progress of several Westlake school gardens that we support.
A wonderfully diverse group of men and women make up our garden club and each member has something different to offer. We constantly learn from each other. Please consider joining us on Feb. 19 to learn about nature journaling in a warm and friendly environment.
The Westlake Garden Club meets the third Wednesday of each month except January and everyone is invited to attend.
I am 2nd Vice President and newsletter editor of the Westlake Garden Club.
