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
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.
