HIDDEN FOREST SAN ANTONIO CLUBS

GARDEN CLUB NEWS

The Garden Club visited the San Antonio river walk and took a ride on a riverboat in October. If you haven’t been down there lately, the plants and flowers along the river are really beautiful this time of year. Our next meeting will be on November 20th at the clubhouse at 9:30. Join us for a DIY Herb Wreath to celebrate all things Fall! Bring your best shears and $15 to cover supplies.

We will begin selling Christmas bows on November 23rd. The cost again this year is $5.00 and proceeds go to keep the flowerbeds in the neighborhood beautiful. As always, your support is greatly appreciated!

If you’re interested in learning more about the Garden Club, or attending a meeting, please contact Deb Waldron Pemberton, Membership Chairperson at 210.373.9114. Everyone is welcome!

GOALS OF THE GARDEN CLUB

  Maintain the flower beds at the entrance to the neighborhood and the center median.
  Help the HOA with planting choices for other beds when needed.
  Select and recognize a Yard of the Month in the Forest for March through October.  This encourages everyone to maintain their yards and keeps the Forest looking great.
  Plant trees in memory of our members.
  Participate in the HOA Fall Festival.
Some of the activities planned for the remainder of 2019 and next year include:
  Speakers on attracting butterflies to your garden, pollinators and native plants, making herb wreaths, tablescape designs, using moss and making spring floral arrangements.
  Field trips to Castroville, Shades of Green Nursery with a class, and a boat ride to see the fall foliage on the River walk.
Our meeting information will be listed in this newsletter each month, so be sure to check back for details and join us when you can!

GARDENING TIPS

Caring for Indoor Plants in winter:
  Check that indoor plants are receiving enough water, humidity and air circulation.
  Keep an eye out for pests like spider mites and scale, and take care of them before they become a problem.
  Although many indoor plants go dormant in winter, watch for signs that they are not getting enough light (yellowing leaves, straggly stems) and move your plants to a brighter spot, if necessary.
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

YARD OF THE MONTH

Mother nature blessed the home of Margret Unger at 1103 White Pine Dr. The plumbago, pride of Barbados, salvia, butterfly bush, and sweet potato vine create a lovely, lush pathway leading to her front door— giving it a Secret Garden kind of feeling. She welcomes more than flowers and foliage, though. Her garden is buzzing with pollinators of all kinds to include bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Margret has lived on White Pine Drive for 45 years and remembers when builders planted the now-giant oaks, which make Hidden Forest home. The centerpiece of her yard is the halo of cast irons that her late husband, Skip, planted around their 40’ oak tree. Living off the same oak is an American Flag hung nicely over her pathway, waving with freedom. Behind the tree you’ll find family antiques—her father’s plow and stone grinding wheel from their family ranch in Eden, TX, artistically climbing with jasmine. Tying her aesthetic together are her beautiful, custom-made gates, carefully crafted by Skip using antique wood from Castroville, TX. Her personal touches help make her yard warm and welcoming, and her overall vision is enhanced by other cheerful, magical elements like wind chimes, a birdbath and feeder, as well as a unique trough water fountain. To bring your garden to life, consider wheelbarrows, past-down family items, or other antiques like Margret. Be sure to drive by and find inspiration in her remarkable, one-of-a-kind yard. You won’t be short on ideas!
