Last Post on the Kiwanis' "Random Acts of Culture"
This will be the last post detailing the garden party hosted by Dr. Darrel and Marilyn Apps and the Kiwanis. The editor for our local weekly paper covered the event, too, and the upcoming issue devotes an entire full color page of great publicity for the event.
Hostas at three years old, growing in the best soil money can buy. No root competion here on the north side of the house.
Parterre of boxwood, barberry, sedum 'Angelina' and 'Gold Coin' lysimachia. 'Black Lace' Sambuca is featured in the center of the wheel.
Out quaint village seen beyond the yard. Cool yellows, grays, and blues set the mood in this section of the garden.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. By all accounts, it was a success. I think the intended goal was 50 guests per garden party. The first session was 72 and the second 62. Ticket fees went to the Kiwanis Scholarhip Fund.
