Here are a few memories from the

            2017 Bloom Host Program

 

Members pick a date and time to open their gardens to other club members to share knowledge, design ideas, failures and successes. Garden camaraderie at it's finest!

           

             Thank you to all of our hosts!

 

 

Maxine hosted Club members to a tour of her garden in Frisco.  

Yummy appetizers were served from her lovely gazebo.  Her husband's train nestled among her lovely perennial and annual flowers is the centerpiece.

 

 

 

 

 

Club member, Alyse, treated members to an educational tour of her yard and greenhouse along with various delicious garden-party hors d'oeuvres and refreshments.  Alyse specializes in sustainable garden practices.

 

 

 

 

 

Club members toured Suzie's colorful garden and then enjoyed a potluck lunch.

Suzie's beautiful yard has been on our annual Garden Tour many times!  She makes gardening look easy which we know isn't especially in our beautiful Rocky Mountains!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suzie's garden was once nothing but native gravel and rocks. The berms she and Jerry added have helped shelter and frame their lovely piece of heaven.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Members of the Summit Garden Club met at Bloom Host Ferol's house to learn about when and how to divide and transplant plants.  Thanks to Nancy for sharing her expertise and thanks to the other master gardeners in attendance who answered questions about plants and gardening in Summit County. It was a beautiful morning in the mountains with lots of good conversations about our passion gardening. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kathie hosted members to her awesome yard filled with every imaginable variety of mountain wildflowers and shared her "secrets of success".

Kathie has been a previous Garden Tour host showing visitors how she has transformed her yard of beetle killed lodge pole pines into a feast for the eyes!

Lynn hosted members of the garden club on a beautiful Summer

morning. Her yard has been on our annual Garden Tour.

Starting in the front yard an assortment of colorful perennials

and annuals surround the entire house with walking paths.

A beautiful stream running the length of the

backyard calls to the wildlife to come and sip!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Evie and Al welcomed Garden Club members to their beautiful yard

and lovely home with a spectacular view.  We were treated to delicious

appetizers and refreshements while being entertained with their story of

how the house and the gardens have developed over the years. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We try to educate our members and the community about gardening in Summit County and provide a social setting for informational exchanges to share the beauty of gardening with others.

There's lots going on in our Club and room for many to be involved. It's surprising how much we accomplish in our short Summit summer
