"Making a Living Wreath"

     The Monroeville Garden Club met on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the home of Gail Touchton in Monroeville, Al.  Bev Colquett was co-hostess.

     Dana Shinholster, garden club member, presented a program on "Making a Living Wreath of Succulents".   To make the wreath, sphagnum moss is soaked in water and then secured around a wire form using floral wire.  The succulents are then placed around the wreath and after a week or two will begin to form roots and eventually grow to cover the whole form.  The wreath is spritzed with water periodically to keep moistened.  Members brought succulents to exchange.

     Following the program, members enjoyed refreshments of Chocolate Pecan Meringues, Lemon Melt Aways, Mint Brownies, Ambrosia Cookies, Cherry Cheese Ball with crackers, grapes, tea and coffee.  Twelve members attended the meeting.
