This month enjoy photographs taken by Nancy Knollenberg at Lake Forest Place and fall displays in Las Vegas, Sylvia Dunbeck when traveling to Japan, Bonita Friedland enjoying the view from her front porch, and Marcia Moore, who tempts us with a photo of the delicious food she and other members enjoyed while dining at their first “Farm to Table” event at the Homestead Restaurant in Chicago. Go to our photo gallery to see more of these and pictures taken by Sherri Nichols. Also, visit our Out and About page for more nature photos taken by members during their travels.
“I have a garden of my own,
Shining with flow’rs of ev’ry hue;
I lov’d it dearly while alone,
But I shall love it more with you.”

Are You a Lazy Gardener?
Not every gardener is a Master Gardener or one able or willing to spend hours in the garden every day. If this is you, check out this video for “the lazy gardener,” like me! It has some useful tips that the Master Gardeners among us already know! Click on the orange link.
(Yes, you read that correctly. I know, I was surprised, too!)

Please enjoy this five minute video about a dedicated group of volunteers who “grave garden” in a mid-19th century cemetery in Philadelphia. It is inspiring!
