Members of Seaford’s Spade & Trowel Garden Club gathered on Dec. 1 to decorate the annual Ross Mansion Christmas Tree.

The club had visited Winterthur last December and admired a tree there decorated entirely in dried flowers. Deciding to try a similar effort, over the summer and fall, members collected and dried flowers from their home gardens to decorate a freshly cut tree at Ross Mansion. However, since the Mansion was being painted, this year’s tree was located next door at the Ross Station Event Center where club members spent Dec. 4 and 5 creating wreaths, swags, cemetery mounds and centerpieces for their annual fundraiser.


Garden of the Month

A first for the S&T G.C.

The club has instituted a new program where any garden can be nominated


and receive recognition as an outstanding garden upon


voting by the current club members.

The recipient does not have to be a member of the S&T G.C.

but must maintain their own garden.
