September 10, 2014Floral Designs Inspired by Fabulous Gardens II with Thelma Shoneman       

Thelma will return with Fabulous Gardens Part II, featuring floral designs inspired by 6 fabulous gardens that she has recently visited in North Dakota, California, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Vermont.  Each arrangement includes a different leaf manipulation or design method, which she will demonstrate.  She will talk about each garden and the unique attraction which inspired the “floral souvenir”!

Hope to see you there!

This year is the 25th anniversary of Lexington's designation as a Tree City USA.  A Sugar Maple, (Acer Saccharum), generously donated by Matt Foti, was planted on the grounds of Buckman Tavern. A memorial ceremony honored club members who passed away in the past year.




Lexington Field & Garden Club in our Schools

 
Lexington Field and Garden Club donated over 500 White Spruce “Picea glauca” seedlings to provide every first grader in Lexington Public Schools (LPS) with a seedling.  These seedlings were part of the science lessons in each first grade during the week of April 28 to May 2.  Lexington Field and Garden Club’s Mary Beth Whiteside, Margaret Bradley, and Ann Webster with their teams coordinated this program with Karen McCarthy, the Science Coordinator for Elementary school programs, LPS.  These trees enhance the science curriculum on organisms.This is an educational outreach of Arbor Day, and Lexington’s celebration of its 25th Anniversary as a Tree City USA through The Arbor Day Foundation. 

We were honored and pleased to receive the first place award in the civic organizations category in the 2013 Lexington's Patriot's Day Parade. Many thanks to our partners, Season's Four and Mal's Autobody!
