Bob Schamerhorn - Award Winning Nature Photographer
Bob's "Gardening for Birds and Butterflies" program was packed with tips and experiences on how to improve any property for a diversity of wildlife. Varying micro-environments within a given area invite a bouquet of different species. He shared specific examples and results of a suburban landscape becoming inviting to birds, butterflies, insects and mammals. Colorful photography, bird songs and the occasional HD clip made this a true multi-media presentation.

"Mother/Daughter Fun with Foliage & Flowers"
Mary Arakelian and Lili Aram-Bost started off our new garden club year with a head-to-head "challenge" with both creating designs using identical materials. These two NGC Master Flower Show Judges incorporated new ideas they learned from the 2022 OFAD seminar in California. They were informative as well as entertaining! We are thankful that they chose to join Salisbury Garden Club when they moved to the Richmond area!
