Woodbridge Garden Club Blooms with Spring Talks, Trips, and Fundraiser
Sharon Kohary of Flower Nook

The Bethany Garden Club hosted the Garden Club of Woodbridge on April 8. The speaker, Karen Bussolini, presented "Great Trees and Shrubs for Sustainable Landscapes." Karen Bussolini (https://www.karenbussolini.com/) is a widely-published garden photographer, speaker, writer, NOFA-Accredited Organic Land Care Professional and eco-friendly garden coach. She is now the Senior Horticultural Advisor at White Flower Farm.

On April 30 the Garden Club of Woodbridge took a field trip to ColorBlends House and Spring Garden in Bridgeport. A kaleidoscope of tulips greeted the members. All were enthralled by the beauty of the garden as a landscape architect provided a tour. The property possesses a mansion built in 1903, where various local artists showcase their creativity.

The club's annual luncheon and fundraiser took place on June 4 at the Birchwoods at Oak Lane in Woodbridge. New officers were voted in for the upcoming season, and a delicious lunch was served by the country club. "Flowers with Movement-Trending-Newest Style in How We arrange Flowers" was a hit as Sharon Kohary of Flower Nook in North Haven arranged three gorgeous designs. Members participated in a raffle for Sharon's florals, and also joined in a raffle for the table arrangements. Food-filled baskets, gift cards, flower arrangements and a stunning array of hanging baskets were available for the silent auction. The luncheon and fundraiser were a resounding success.
