Jones creates floral designs at Magnolia Garden Club

MOULTRIE — Barbara Jones displayed Armature Form Designs that she created at the Magnolia Garden Club.

The first design was a Class 3 Design, "A Memory of Times Past.” She used and old quilt, a milking stool, rooster, and wire fence and a place setting of china, etc. The second design was a Class 6 — “Wings Aloft.” The third was a Class 9 "At Sunrise" Depicting Oriental Manner: “Heaven, Earth and Man." Fourth was a small Hawaiian Design, “Here I Come."

Dotti Bynum gave an interesting program on Baltimore Orioles. She elaborated on their colors and songs. You will find the oriole in the North American region. They are orange and black in color and sing many songs. They are fond of fruit and nectar as well as insects. They also like sipping from hummingbird feeders. The female weaves a remarkable banging nest. Baltimore Orioles are more often seen than heard as they feed high in trees. They are easily lured to backyard feeders.

Mary Phillips created a design for the Food Table with ferns, marigolds and candelabra.

Lorena Barhite, president, opened the meeting, with a welcome to the members and visitors. Faye Rowe gave the devotion and prayer. Milred Rentz gave the Treasury report.

Mary Phillips judged the horticulture brought by members from their flower gardens. She explained how to prepare your flowers for entering them in a flower show and gave blue ribbons for everyone.

At a recent District Board meeting, the Magnolia Garden Club received two Certificates of Recognition from the Garden Club of Georgia — one for Garden Therapy and the other for 100% Sales of Georgia Engagement Calendars.

Two new members of the Garden Club were Gwen Desselle and Pam McGlamry.

Clariece Elmore from a Thomasville Garden Club was a visitor.

Hostesses for the meeting were Mary Phillips, Shirley Mims and Lorena Barhite.

    Damage to ornamental plants caused by deer has increased significantly during the last few years. And this damage is both an urban and a rural problem due to increasing deer populations and suburban development strategies into natural woodlands.

  • Ga Clipping.JPG ‘Low maintenance’ doesn’t mean ‘no maintenance’

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

  • Kichler, Jeremy.jpg Nematodes in my garden!

    I often get questions about controlling nematodes in the home vegetable garden. Since there are no home gardener chemicals we can get economically for nematode control then the answers get few.

  • Kichler, Jeremy.jpg Fire ants in my garden

    Questions about fire ants in the garden are common around the Extension office. Fire ants can be a nuisance and they can damage some vegetable crops such as okra and Irish potatoes. Fewer fire ant mounds would result from tilling your garden but a few mounds may persist in heavy mulch or close to vegetable plants. In these cases fire ant baits or mound treatments may be in order.

    There’s much more to enjoy in your home landscape beyond the basic plants and flowers. There’s awesome music and movies galore simply provided by nature through wildlife for you. Add colors, movements, and sounds that make your home landscape appear more alive and vibrant in your quest to welcome birds and butterflies into your space.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
