Wildflower Garden Club learns flower personality

GREENVILLE—The Wildflower Garden Club met Feb. 7 at Chris Lemon’s house. Roll call was: “Are you blessed with Irish blood?” The majority of the answers were no. The treasurer’s report was read and approved.

The fast talk on “What’s your flower personality?” was given by Peggy Overholser. Take a look at these five personality types and choose the one that best suits you.

Natural – you are casual, earthy and prefer the outdoors. Flowering or green plants, meadow flowers and woodsy accents suit you personality best.

Expressive – you search for personal betterment and are attracted to the unconventional. Exotic flowers and unusual combinations of shapes, colors and textures match your creativity and artistic bent.

Romantic – you are a dreamer, generous, spontaneous, even extravagant and are drown to bouquets of soft colors, light fragrances and accents of lace or ribbon.

Traditional – you are trustworthy, family-oriented, prefer classical styles and appreciate lush arrangements with a great variety of flowers.

Contemporary – you are a cutting-edge trendsetter who enjoys living in the moment. Styles such as monochromatic bouquets or arrangements with a few large, vibrant flowers are favorites.

In old business, the club is in charge of getting door prizes for the April 22 regional meeting at the Turtle Creek Country Club. Barb Rhoades is in charge with Chris Lemon helping her.

In new business, there was discussion on where to plant a tree for Arbor Day. Members had several places in mind; Teri An Kline and Chris Detrick will look into it. Also, the club will have it’s plant sale May 4 at hazel Stump’s house.

The evening’s program was on doing a decoupage project on a glass container with Brenda Grant as the instructor. Members used napkins with different prints to cover the containers, which made everyone’s different and unique. Elke Melling showed how to make little roses using tissue paper or napkins. After they are made, hot glue them to a piece of twig and put it in a vase. This makes a very nice looking flower arrangement.

Enjoying the refreshments were Nancy Baker, Judy Burns, Shirley Delaplane, Chris Detrick, Brenda Grant, Teri Ann Kline, Chris Lemon, Elke Melling, Virginai O’Dell, Peggy Overholser, Barb Rhoades, Martha Singleman and guest Sue Eyer. The door prize, a basket of goodies, was won by Shirley Delaplane.
