HPSW 2015 Annual Picnic

The annual HPSW picnic will be in Beda Herbison’s garden  on August 8, 2015  from  Noon to 3pm.  (Although we can stay later if we’re still talking!)

In the unlikely event that it rains we’ll be able to go inside, otherwise we’ll be in the shade of Beda’s large Cedar tree. 

The picnic is a potluck. HPSW will supply drinks and plates, cups etc. So all you need to bring is your potluck dish and a serving utensil. See you there!images-1

HPSW Meeting -June 15 @ 7pm : Bob Seaman – Pacific Coast Irises

PCI.Silver Plate clumpIt’s said that growing Pacific Coast Iris can be a challenge. This may be true for some of them, but they are well worth the effort!   Join Bob Seaman for a stroll through the garden and see why.

Bob will do a quick review of other irises as well.

Bob Seaman has created a beautiful garden on this small city lot and has specialized in PCIs since 2009. He has over 240 varieties, as well as a smattering of bearded irises and misc. other species, tucked into every corner, making excellent use of the small space.   Bob Seaman
