The Westlake Garden Club welcomes Dr. Dvora Nelson, M.D., co-founder of the Lakewood Medical Clinic, who will discuss Ohio’s newly implemented medical marijuana program. Dr. Nelson will speak to our club on Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. She will explain how medical marijuana can alleviate suffering from certain conditions and will emphasize the importance of working with a doctor to assure that the product that you get is tailored to your disease or condition. Dr Nelson will talk about a few of the conditions that Ohio deems eligible for a medical cannabis recommendation. This program is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Non-garden club members are asked to register with the Westlake Library.
July 17th’s midsummer potluck was a great success! Thanks to Jackie for hosting us. Following a brief business meeting, 31 members and guests shared a wonderful assortment of foods—pastas, salads, desserts —amazing how potlucks just seem to work out! It was a great chance to sit and visit. The pool looked especially inviting on such a warm evening. Glad it wasn’t the Garden Tour!
The June garden walks were well attended and a great success. The break in the rainy weather came just at the right time. We are so grateful to all of the homeowners who welcomed our group and managed to get their gardens all looking beautiful despite the constant rain and soggy conditions. Some of the highlights of the tour were wonderful, lush shade plants that benefitted from all the rain, a most restful canopied area for a summer nap, interesting “yard art”, beautiful potted arrangements including some lovely dahlias and heliotropes, and many places to stop to enjoy the garden whether it was a nicely placed bench or a fully furnished gazebo. We thank all those who so graciously allowed us to visit and who were very generous in sharing their expertise and allowing us to enjoy some refreshments as we toured the gardens.
