HIDDEN FOREST SAN ANTONIO CLUBS

GARDEN CLUB NEWS

The Garden Club met in December for a delicious brunch and Christmas gift exchange at the home of Barbara Yates. Special thanks to Barbara for hosting this special event as she does each year! Our January 23rd meeting will be a tour of the historic Maverick/Carter house near downtown, followed by lunch.

The Christmas bow sale was a success again this year. The proceeds will be used to keep the flowerbeds at the entrance to the Hidden Forrest and in the center median beautiful. As always, your support is greatly appreciated. A special thank you goes to the folks at the Ten-O-Five Market who purchased 8 bows to decorate their store.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Garden Club, or attending a meeting, please contact Judy Sandidge at 210.260.8986 or Susan Hawthorne at 210.495.1921. Everyone is welcome!

GARDENING TIPS

We all know that flowers make us happy and help us to feel better, but studies have shown that house plants also offer a variety of benefits to owners. They can add more than just decoration to a room. Here are some of the ways they can improve quality of life:
  Purify the air by removing a variety of toxic air emissions and putting out clean air
  Reduce fatigue, coughs, sore throats and other cold related illnesses partially by increasing humidity levels and decreasing dust
  Make you feel calmer and more optimistic
  Reduce stress and blood pressure
  Speed up healing- Studies have shown that hospital patients who have a garden view tend to heal faster than those who face a wall
  Improve creativity by providing a release for your eyes from staring at a computer screen
  Improve your sleep – Gerbera daisies give off oxygen at night which helps you sleep and lavender is beneficial in helping to fall asleep
It is recommended that for best results about 15 plants of at least 6” diameter pots are needed for an 1,800 square foot home.  Some of the most recommended house plants include dragon tree, ivy, ficus, philodendrons, spider plants, peace lilies, ferns, chrysanthemums and palms.
"Every man should be born again on the first day of January.  Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first day of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past."
-  Henry Ward Beecher
