April Design Exhibit!

THEME: Painting with Flowers

Each month we will use a famous painting as the inspiration for our floral designs. Look at each painting and be inspired by not just the colors and composition the artist used, but also the textures, depth, and movement of the eye they achieved.   A specific artist and their painting will be featured each month.   April’s artist is Lee Piper with the painting A Rainy Day.

The Philly Flower Show

Despite a gray, rainy, and dreary day, Spring was definitely alive inside the Convention Center with popping displays of bright floral colors: pink, orange, purple, green, and every other shade in between. All our attendees, for at least this one day, were transported into this slice of floral heaven.  Thank you Gary Bierman for leading us to a fun time at the Philly Flower Show.  

Hilton Rain Garden Cleanup

Join us in cleaning up the Hilton Rain Garden located adjacent to the Maplewood Memorial Hilton Branch Library. This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity and a chance to meet new members. Once a year we need help in preparing the space for the new season, so I’m asking you to come and lend a hand on Saturday, April 13, 2023 at 9:30 am. Many hands make light work. Please bring a kneeling pad, gloves, and clippers. Contact Bill Kohlman if you have questions.
