Workshop on August 15

Hi everyone,

We decided to move our Miniatures Gardens Workshop to the August 15th rain date due to the predicted thunderstorms tomorrow.  Nothing is more fun than enjoying the class outdoors surrounded by plants and sunshine, and we don’t want to risk you and your miniature creation getting soaked during a strong rain.  I’m hoping those registered can make the new date. Please confirm your attendance to the new date by emailing at or 860 977 9473.  For more information, see SCHEDULE OF EVENTS on this blog. Thank you in advance. Cathy T

Class location: 72 Harrington road, Broad Brook, CT 06016

Cost: $15 per person. See description for items included under SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Time: 6 pm to 8 pm.

Date: August 15, 2013, Thursday

Come to socialize, learn, create, and enjoy. You take home your creation!!  Great as a center piece on a table, gift, hostess gift or keep for yourself!  Create a theme based on your style or home. The guest speaker is an Advanced Master Gardener and Professional Designer from Gardening Inspirations.

Peacock Butterfly.
