cyclamen

 

 

       Lynne Harrison will host the HPSW Holiday party at her waterfront house on Mercer Island

Sunday December 14 , 12-4pm

 

(so we can find Lynne’s house in daylight)  

Bring Pot luck food and wrapped White elephant gifts. You do not have to participate in the white elephant gift exchange if you prefer not to; you can still come to the party.

Lynne will provide the beverages (cheap wine and cider). The rule on white elephant gifts: you cannot bring back what you received last  year; but you can bring back something you received two years ago, or earlier.

Directions and address provided to members by email.  Feel free to call for directions if you get lost.

HPSW Meeting: November 17 @ 7pm with Ross Bayton

 How Plants Get Their Names

 

 

 

Dr. Ross Bayton, a taxonomist who trained at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (UK), will explain what taxonomy is, why it’s important and how it affects gardeners. So if you’ve ever felt frustrated when your favorite plant changed its name, he’s the one to blame (feel free to bring along some rotten tomatoes to throw…)
