Apples, Apples, Apples, with Betsy Williams
The apple, one of our most ancient and useful fruits, has played an important role in fall and winter celebrations for many centuries. Get crafty and embrace its many facets this fall season at this fun, apple-inspired workshop!
Participants will make and take home apple candles to decorate the seasonal table, a spicy apple pomander for gift giving, fragrant old-fashioned mast balls, ornaments made with apple-cinnamon dough, and a fresh Winter Apple Potpourri.
A $45.00 materials fee, which will be collected in class, covers all plant material, mechanics, and craft-making supplies. Checks payable to Betsy Williams. Please bring floral scissors and an apron to class. And wear old clothes—this will be a messy class!
This is an event the whole family will love. Bring your child, grandchild or friend and work on the projects together.
Apple cider and goodies will be served.

Had to make her an official member of the garden crew — though you wouldn’t be wrong to think after reading this post […]
Transition into summer
(Jun 26, '15)
The to-plant list is getting shorter and we are beginning to transition into a summer-full of deadheading/staking/weeding/enjoying. Right on schedule too: we always aim to be *done by July 4th. (*No garden is ever done.) This week we got the last of the plants out of the greenhouse, tucked in a few final packs of seedlings here and […]
The longest days
(Jun 19, '15)
June is full to bursting. Every plant that isn’t already blooming to beat the band is growing gangbusters (weeds included), and to say there’s a lot to do would be the understatement of the season.The long days leading up to the longest have been so busy that I have been feeling ready for a weekend as early as Tuesday. –Monday afternoon, even. Since […]
