Rosalia Garden Club

Rosalia Garden Club placed roses on display Tuesday at the Rosalia Library. They will be on display through today, Thursday, during library hours. An added display this year will be topiaries made by garden club members out of dried plant material.

Club members recently toured two outstanding gardens in Cheney. Bob and Betty Gingrich's garden specializes in flowering perennials in an overall color-coordinated landscape. It also contains a blend of rocks and a water feature.

John and Joellene Taves' garden features many raised beds with an automatic drip water system along with a lot of fruit trees and grape vines. It also includes a large rose garden that is just starting to bloom.

Next Rosalia Garden Club meeting will be July 11 at Terrie Tucker's home where members will tour her garden at 6 p.m.
