As my mother used to say, the world has started turning again. School is back and, most importantly, our clubs have all started meeting again.

The first meeting of our garden club is Tuesday February 6, and we are all looking forward to an interesting and eventful year. 

Our first bus trip is scheduled for Thursday March 21 – details will be provided.

At the time of writing this we are having storms each afternoon which is keeping the gardens well-watered. Some of my plants are really looking good. However, that also means that the lawns are growing, as are the weeds. 

February is still really maintenance only in the garden, that is if you can bear to get out of the air conditioning into the heat and humidity. However, if you want some ideas, there is an open garden at Dakabin on February 17 and 18 at 23 Hughes Road West – it has never been open before so I am looking forward to seeing it.

This month, Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday 14 February. This is a lovely time to appreciate that special person in your life. 

The oldest known Valentine is a poem written by Charles Duke of Orleans to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London, following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt.  This was written in 1415 and is part of a collection in the British Library in London.

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month with morning tea served at 9.30 am for a 10.00 am start. The venue is the National Servicemen’s Association Hall at 907 Boundary Road, Wacol (entrance off Metroplex Place and Nashos Place). 

We welcome visitors who may be interested in joining our very friendly club.

For further information please contact Jill on 0403 002 143 or Pat on 0438 727 482.

Happy gardening.
