Remember back in early spring when we thought we were in a drought?  Well, I’m certainly thankful I was proven wrong.  The rain for us has, for the most part, been slow and steady.  Now, according to the forecast, we are in for a week of sunny days.  Perfect timing!  Our May Garden Club meeting will be outside at Shirley Matthew’s lovely iris garden.  Even if the forecast changes, we will meet anyway. Just dress accordingly. If you have never gone with us to her garden, you are in for a treat.
Everyone is to bring a sack lunch.  This month’s hostesses will provide water and dessert.  If you want something else to drink, you can bring your choice of beverage.

We will meet at the Weston City Hall and carpool for those who want to share rides.  Plan to leave there at 9:00 o’clock sharp.  You are welcome to drive yourself.

Directions:   Shirley’s address is 4111 SW Bethel Road, St. Joseph, Missouri.   From the intersection of 45 Hwy and Hwy H, go north on 45 Hwy to Bethel Road.  This is in the Rushville area. Watch carefully for the small road sign. Turn right on Bethel Road.  It is about 23 miles. Her phone number is 816-688-7678.

Shirley always presents an excellent program on the main issues to keep in mind when growing iris. Although her information is the basics, she is not your basic iris grower.  Wait and see!  And to top it off,  you can make a list of the irises you want starts of. In the fall she will deliver your starts to Marilyn’s shop where you can pick them up.  You can’t beat the prices!

Look forward to seeing everyone in Shirley’s iris garden.
