All Seasons Garden Club recently met at the home of LeeAnn Evans near Freetown.
Members enjoyed touring her numerous gardens. Of special interest were fences created with twigs and also everlastings Evans grows for dried arrangements.
Club members toured Evans’ log cabin and were intrigued by her drying room. Swags, wreaths and other dried arrangements created by Evans were purchased by members.
The group enjoyed discussing plans for winterizing their gardens as they sat around the lake. Refreshments were provided by the officers of the club.
Evans presented favors of miniature pumpkins from her garden. The door prize, presented to Kathy Rush, was one of Evans’ dried arrangements.
