The Garden Club: A Story
Attending my first local Garden Club meeting a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet a great bunch of people! Although everyone was very nice with their welcoming smiles and handshakes, one woman in particular stood out. Initially I noticed her while I was chatting up a storm to a few of the others shortly after I arrived. She stood off to my right and had a soft, gentle smile that went along with her demeanor.
Telling me that she was also a transplant from Virginia and asking me where in Virginia I was from, our conversation grew. We sat together during the meeting and answered my questions willingly. What was so fascinating was that she's from the Louisa County (Va) which is where my dear sweet friend Norma was from!! Can you imagine that these two individuals that I immediately felt a bond with have crossed my path...one down in Virginia and now one here in Connecticut!!
Well that first Garden Club meeting, held in the History Museum, was enough to keep me coming back! They seem to be a great bunch of gals that I'm sure can teach me a lot. As for my new found friend...well...
that's another story!
