by Linda Heideman, Somervell County Master Gardener
It was July 15th, the third Wednesday of the month, the regular business meeting day for Somervell County Master Gardeners. Janna Reynolds, the new Secretary at the Agricultural Extension Agents office, looked on with wide eyes as one by one the Master Gardeners marched in her front door carrying boxes of decoupage gear, paint brushes, colorful paper napkins, clay flower pots and large pieces of cardboard! No one knew exactly what Julie Conner and Shirley Smith, artistes extraordinaire, had in mind for us to do.
Julie is our current president, Shirley was president last year, both excellent presidents, but who knew they were so crafty? We had a great time showing off our surprising talents, and, as usual, I wish I had taken more pictures!
