SLGC

Several club members visited Clara Rankin's former garden at the corner of Chagrin River Road and Shaker Boulevard in August. The garden was designed by Ellen Biddle Shipman, a well-known landscape architect, who described her plantings as if she "were painting pictures as an artist." Mrs. Rankin's garden, designed and installed in the 1920's, has been lovingly maintained over the years.

Visiting a Local Garden

Sally Roman

On the morning of September sixth, 12 garden club members, along with husbands and friends, visited the garden of Brian Thompson in Lyndhurst.  The approach to Brian’s garden is up a herringbone brick driveway that is lined on both sides with patterned stone walls.   The walls curve to form garden rooms - a morning room to enjoy coffee, a relaxed space to watch the sunsets, a curving wooden path that leads to a small water stream and onto a pavilion overlooking  a fish pond. And all of this on Richmond Road.

Monarch Mania

Dozie Herbruck

Monarch butterflies are everywhere in Cleveland!  I have been raising Monarchs for years and have never seen as many as we have seen this year. I'm hearing the same story from many other butterfly lovers.  Every time I checked my milkweed patch I would find either eggs or caterpillar babies, and every time I cut a branch of milkweed to feed the caterpillars,  I brought in more eggs and the cycle began all over again.

NAL Revisited

Robin Schachat

It’s almost like being there – well, not really.  But a few of the presentations Cynthia Druckenbrod and I enjoyed at the GCA’s NAL Meeting are available, as slide presentations, on the GCA website.  The quality of professionalism and research represented in these presentations is astounding.

My Favorite Things

Robin Schachat

This time of year, when we are being teased by occasional days of brilliant blue skies and sunlight that lasts into the early evening, I try not to look too hard at the motheaten snow that continues to adorn my front walk.

My Favorite Thing - Aquafaba

Dozie Herbruck

What is Aquafaba, you ask?  Have you ever opened a can of garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas) and drained off that nasty, viscous liquid surrounding the beans?  That stuff you poured away – it’s liquid gold!  Aquafaba.
