President's Message
Mary Ann Hext

The dog days of summer are upon us but at least we are still having rain. I have only had to water my pots a few times in July and the beds only once. It is so nice to see green pasture, lawns, and tall corn fields around us. Of course, that has created lots of green weeds to pull and required a regular spraying for blackspot prevention.

Bob and Ann Jacobs and Norma Stevenson have done work at the pubic rose garden. Please help when you have time as we hope to keep it for awhile longer. The Jacobs also have been busy delivering bouquets of roses to all of our rose show sponsors. They have taken about 10 dozen roses in vases this summer with a card that has a rose picture and says “Compliments of the Bowling Green Roses Society”.  This is such a wonderful way to say thank you to those who helped us with contributions for our show and we certainly owe them a huge thanks for doing this each year.

Our August garden meeting is at the Matus home. A light supper will be provided and spouses are welcome. The September garden meeting will be at the Jacobs home. Bob may have a hip replacement in September so if this date changes, members will be notified.
