Last night's meeting had many highlights. The guest speaker, Penny, from the RAA helped us wind the clock back and remember events that occurred in South Australia in relation to motoring. Do you remember when seat belts became compulsory in cars? It was 1971!
We were also very privileged to see the induction of a new Life Member. Audrey Dennis was awarded Life Membership, this was in fact approved in 2017, but due to ill health we hadn't seen Audrey for many months. She was surprised and delighted to receive recognition of her many years of service above and beyond since joining in 1983. A photo of Audrey with Lyn, Denise and Peter, 3 of her fellow Life Members who were present is below.
The display genus was Davallia, Humata & Scyphularia which all belong to the same family. The winner of the Bunnings voucher was Vanda who will judge the best plant next month - the genus being Microsorum & Polypodium.
Some images of the display plants are also below. More photos will be in the June Newsletter.
On Saturday 5th May a workshop was held at Coralie & Gordon's home to divide some large ferns and learn about the process. 20+ members were in attendance from Victor Harbor to Gawler and many places in between were there, and everyone went home with some fern divisions to pot.
It was a great social and learning exercise enjoyed by everyone in attendance.
Some images from the garden are below. Thank you Coralie & Gordon for your hospitality.
Well, it's live and members are signing in to the Members Only page which will have newsletters, genus growing notes and more on it as time goes by.
