Please Note, this is a new meeting location First United Methodist Church of Troy 6363 Livernois Troy, MI 48098
We are pleased to announce that the speaker for our March meeting will be Arlene Welsh! She will give a presentation focused on companion plants for daylilies throughout the seasons,with plenty of beautiful pictures taken of their garden by her husband, Bill. Some of you may have been fortunate enough to see her gardens years ago at the 2009 picnic, but as we know, gardens are like fine wine, they only get better with each passing year!
This day is “bring a friend day”. Those who bring a friend that actually becomes a member will receive $5 off of their next membership renewal.
If needed please remember to update your membership at the March meeting. If you have any questions about your membership email the Membership Chair, LaVere Webster.

Nikki is a blogger, haiku poet, gardener, and daylily enthusiast. She brings her energy and passion to the world of daylilies every day and we look forward to having her speak at our April Banquet.
Details are still in the works for this event.

Come join us for a picnic and a tour by Bill Horman of the Sunny Fields Botanical Park, located in Emmet Township in the lower part of 'the thumb'. Twenty-five acres of beauty all coming to life as the weather warms up in mid-May. This time of year the lilacs are certain to be in bloom, but Sunny Fields is home to over 1400 different types of plants, so keep an eye out for other spring bloomers,too! Please plan to bring a food item to share with others. More details will be provided soon!
There are plans to host an off-scape daylily show in July. Volunteers are needed to help with the planning, setup, operation, and cleanup. Thank you, in advance, to anyone who offers to volunteer, it is a big project and we can't do it without you.
To volunteer, please email Libby at Libby.J.Militello@gmail.com.
