Many thanks to the Hermann Park Conservancy's Landscape staff for a very informative tour of the Japanese Garden. They shared several stories of the long awaited visit from the Japanese gardeners who help maintain the garden's Japanese spirit with their regular visits. The COVID crises had kept them away for several years and the garden looked brilliantly renewed by the end of their visit.
Thanks to Molly, Prita, Linda, Elena, Panta, Adel and Che. It took a village and we had a terrific meeting. Che's arrangements for our silent auction of containers helped the sale and beautified the room along with Karen's lovely arrangements.
There are 69 II chapters in the North and Central American Region (NCAR). Check out their site to find out what chapters are doing in their cities. Plus, enjoy ikebana virtual tours on their Facebook site.
Wow, we were able to get together for our last meeting of the 20-21 club year. It was a fun time.
An informative and fun day with a delicious luncheon at the Consul General's home. Thank you to Consul General and Aurora San.
