A group of club members visited Volo Bog State Park and took a guided walking tour of the site. The outing was organized by member Linda Fox.
Volo Bog exhibits all stages of bog succession. A floating mat of sphagnum moss, cattails and sedges surrounds an open pool of water in the center of the bog.
It was a fantastic club gathering "Meet & Greet" at our member Linda Fox's beautiful home garden on Sep. 28th 2019. 15 members attended event. Warm and relax fellowship chit chat accompanied with delicious food and wine, what can be batter than that in this chilly autumn afternoon. Thank you, Linda, for your hospitality to host this event. Everyone had a great time! Pictures below can tell a better story.
What a great afternoon for a picnic at a park like private garden, in and out of a gorgeous house with a million-dollar view and delicious food. Thanks to our member/ gracious hostess Linda Fox, who made this club summer picnic possible. More than half of the members attended and really enjoyed the event. The pictures are worth thousand of words. Please view the slideshow below.
6 members of AGC visited the CBG on a beautiful day in August. They visited the vegetable garden, took a ride on the narrated tram ride which gives you a wonderful overview of all of the gardens. Some of them also visited the bonsai exhibit and visited the butterfly exhibit. The butterfly exhibit was the highlight of the visit. The butterflies were very active. They seemed to be playing with one another. Flying around landing on flowers rocks and people. Some of members were lucky enough to have butterflies land on their hands. It was a wonderful group outing day!
What a wonderful summer garden party we had on Saturday August 24th at Antony and John's beautiful home and garden. Nestled in the city of Waukegan, it's an oasis of three years in the making. It was started from a blank canvas, evolved into a lush landscape with perennial and annual flowers and evergreens, combined with outstanding hardscape, such as sculptures, a koi pond and comfy sitting arrangements, that made this place an every gardener's envy. The house inside has been also tastefully decorated with eye catching arts and crafts. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious and as colorful as flowers. At the end of the party, we even had an authentic English tea that brewed by real Englishman Antony. What a treat! Our members enjoyed every minute of this party. Thank you, Antony and John!
Below are photos taken at the event that are worth more than thousand words.
