NOVEMBER MEETING

The November meeting was held at “The Old School House” at Yetholme. Built in 1858 the beautiful historic home is now owned by club member Belinda Cobcroft.  Belinda and Brian purchased the property in 2012. Belinda and Brian are slowly clawing back the plantings of maples, crab apples, birch, rhododendrons and roses from the relentless ivy and layering vibernums that for years engulfed the plants, buildings and fences.   Thank you Belinda and Brian for sharing your garden with us.
