Coffee In The Garden:
in the gardens of
Catherine Pannell and Robert Waters
Sunday, March 9
Welcome to Downey! Catherine Pannell and Robert Waters, SCHS members, have lived and gardened in Downey for 38 years. They still laugh about buying a house for the gardening potential of the 1/3-acre lot and only later discovering the house had no closet space, needed a furnace and none of the windows opened. Doing all the gardening and other work on their own, their garden has gone through a palm phase, a cacti phase, an annual phase, a perennial phase, etc. A few years back they purchased the vacant lot next door and are now going through a truly fun California native plant phase. There's a little bit of everything in their garden -- an orchard, a vegetable garden, lawns, native plantings, espaliers, and a camp ground picnic area.
Please join us for an informal tour with coffee and light refreshments on Sunday, March 9 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. This tour is free to SCHS members, but a $5.00 entry fee will apply to guests. Please sign up at the February meeting, online at the SCHS MemberLodge, by printing out and mailing in the PDF flyer, or by calling Joel Lichtenwalter at 310-908-5036
Deadline for registration is Friday, March 7.
