June Meeting

Our Members’ Sale will be Saturday, June 15th at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices in Voorheesville. We’re very excited to have 12 babysitter plants coming back from members’ gardens and 20 wonderful daylilies from Marge Moon’s garden. Everyone will get a chance to bid on their favorites. Marge is moving to Florida and let us raid her extensive daylily garden for some of her best daylilies.

Please Note: if you are returning a babysitter plant for the sale, please wash all the soil off the roots and divide the plant into sections of 2 or 3 fans. You may keep 2 fans to put back into your garden in appreciation for taking such good care of the babysitter plant. The other fans will be labeled for the sale. But since there are so many babysitter plants coming back for the sale, it will be helpful and save time if we don’t have to do the dividing at the sale.

Lonesome Jaguar by Derrow, 2010

There are no facilities to wash the dirt off the plants so your preparation of the plant is important.

We also picked out 20 additional daylilies for the sale table. The sale table plants will be a set price. People will be selected to make choices from the table in a similar manner to the way we choose names for the door prizes. Each daylily will be labeled and have a picture so people will know what the flower looks like and all the information about the plant.

Also, the new babysitter plants will be distributed. Everyone receiving a new babysitter plant will have to sign a contract with HADS that indicates the daylily belongs to HADS and that the person is growing it for eventual return to the Members’ Sale.

If you have other perennials that you would like to share, bring them in – we’ll set up a table for other plants people wish to share.

The Members’ Sale is always fun and exciting – so bring your checkbook and any HADS Bux you wish to redeem!

The daylilies included in the auction are:
BIG HEARTED JIM
BINDERS OF WOMEN
CARNELIAN CHAMELEON
CELESTIAL NAVIGATION
CHILI SPICE
CHINESE CHANCE

May Meeting

Our Members’ Sale has been postponed until the June 15th meeting. When we met in April, several members didn’t feel their daylilies were out of the ground enough to get a good idea of how many fans there were on the plants. It was suggested that the Members’ Sale be postponed until June. Since the distribution of the babysitter plants doesn’t take much time, a motion was made and seconded to move the Members’ Sale to the June meeting. A vote was taken and the motion was passed.

Join us on May 11th at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices in Voorheesville for A Short Course in Photography in the Garden. Frank Almquist has graciously agreed to be our speaker. Frank has been making garden pictures for years and collected a group of images on what to do – and not to do – when photographing. The program will discuss how a camera works, how to use various lenses, then spend some time on composition. To enforce points on composition, examples of good and bad photos are included in the talk.

The audience will have the opportunity to see the differences in photographing in sunlight as opposed to light shade. The advantage of early morning and late evening photography will also be discussed. Some techniques on photo editing will also be covered.

Come on Saturday and get some pointers on how to take great pictures for our Photo Contest at the December holiday gathering! Bring a friend and a dish to share.
