Residents enjoy gardening club
Council Bluffs Primrose
It was no big surprise that many ladies at the Council Bluffs Primrose grabbed their gloves and put on their hats to join the Gardening Club — gardening has always been a hobby to many of them.
The Club’s first priority was visiting Diller Greenhouses where they partnered up and picked out certain flowers for their planters around the gazebo at Primrose. The ladies meet regularly to clean, water and admire the flowers, and trim the roses from time to time.
They make sure to always have coffee and a little dessert to go along with the ensuing conversation that happens whenever they garden.
Their plans for September are to visit the botanical gardens and take a trip to the zoo to see the butterfly exhibit. They also plan to host a movie night with refreshments, where the movie of the evening will be “The Secret Garden.”
And just because winter will eventually arrive doesn’t mean they will stop: the Gardening Club plans to attend community activities pertaining to gardening, flower shows and of course, anything to do with poinsettias!
