EMHS August 2022 Newsletter

 

Eastern Michigan Hosta Society
August 2022 Newsletter

Note from the President- We had another wonderful tour last month thanks to Karen & Larry Erickson, Janis & Dennis Pardeik, and Dawn & Gary Kendall.   All three gardens were beautiful and hopefully an inspiration to all that visited them.   Since all three gardens had daylilies we got to see some of the latest in the daylily hybridizer’s efforts to improve on the orange “ditch lilies” we all know from driving through the country roads.   The old orange ones have been turned into just about any color you can imagine except a true blue.   Thank you again to the owners of these spectacular gardens for sharing your time, your gardens, and for your GRACIOUS HOSPITALITY.  

The August 11th tour will be in Lake Orion at the home of Jim Slezinski.   We will be going as a group to this garden because Jim has another group coming on the same day and will be entertaining all day long.   We will all meet at Jim’s house at 3:00 PM and leave no later than 5:00 PM. 

The name of Jim’s gardens is The Lake Orion Abode.   He has been working on his gardens for 38 years and anyone who visits is going to be amazed at the gardens but especially about his tropical gardens.   Jim has added a pond with streams to the gardens and a look-out deck that overlooks the gardens.   A suggestion by Jim is that if you see a flower or plan t you want to ask about, take a picture with your phone so that you can show him the picture to ask about it.   This alleviates the constant walking around to answer your questions.   We will be parking in his neighbor’s yard BEHIND the white fence and walking over to Jim’s yard.   There is no room to park on the road so please follow the signs for parking.    The directions to Jim’s are below in this newsletter.  

Carpooling is always suggested for the summer tours.   It saves on gas, parking space, and gives you time to discuss what you have just seen during your visit.   It is also suggested that you eat while on the road driving to the tour site and also stop to use the bathroom while driving as none of these sites have a public restroom.  

Another treat for the tour day is that Barb Hunter is opening her gardens for visitors and sales from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM then again after the tour at Jim’s for those that want to gather for a party.   Barb will collect money to order pizza.   Bring your lawn chair and your favorite beverage and spend time sitting around and talking.  

I look forward to seeing you at the Tour at Jim’s and afterwards at Barb’s.  

Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President

 

Next Meeting- Will be a Garden Tour on August 11th, 2022 in Lake Orion at the home of Jim Slezinski, 699 Pine Tree Rd, Lake Orion, MI 48362.  Ph. 248-521-5829.  Look for the BIG FLOWER at the black mailbox and follow the signs for parking.     
            Directions: From M-24 in Lapeer, drive south on M-24 through Oxford about 19 miles to Indianwood Rd.  (Traffic light with Krogers on the left-hand side).   Turn Right onto Indianwood Rd. and drive about 2 miles to the 4-way Stop.   Turn Left onto Joslyn Rd. and drive about 1 mile to the 3-way Stop.   Turn Left onto Heights Rd. And drive about 1 mile to the 4-way Stop (Pine Tree School is on the Left).  Turn Right onto Pine Tree Rd. to the sixth house on the Left with the BIG FLOWER at the black mailbox.   Pull into the driveway with the signage to direct you to parking at the neighboring lawn on the right.     It is just a short walk back to Jim’s where we will meet at the garage at 3:00 PM.   We will leave no later than 5:00 PM.

Don’t forget to bring your own bottle of water and use the bathroom on the way there.

 Eastern Michigan Hosta Society

July 2022 Newsletter

Note from the President- A big thank-you goes out to Teresa Dillon and Mike Scherbovich for opening their gardens on June 9th and hosting our first garden tour of 2022.   I also want to thank Angela Nelson of East Michigan Native Nursery for opening her nursery to us so we could buy plants from her. 

Teresa’s garden was spectacular with a large variety of plantings.   The Hosta and companion plants were beautiful and the mini Hosta bed had some of the best grown minis I had ever seen.   Too bad the Martagons weren’t blooming yet.   Once her Daylilies start blooming her yard will be filled with flowers. 

I fully intend to go back to Mike Scherbovich’s garden in mid-summer to take pictures of a blooming butterfly garden and share them on the EMHS blog.   Visiting his gardens in June one cannot see the impact of this type of gardening, but once you see it all in flower and the number of butterflies it attracts it will amaze you.  

The July 14th tour will be in Clio and Flushing at the homes of Karen and Larry Erickson, Janis and Dennis Pardeik, and Dawn and Gary Kendall.   All three of these gardens will be filled with Daylilies and should be in peak bloom at the time of our tour.   Karen and Janis are avid Daylily hybridizers so you will most likely get to see flowers that have not even been registered with the Daylily Society.   All three gardens will also have Hosta and interesting plants as well as some unique yard art.  

At the Erickson’s please pull to the back yard and the parking area will be marked.   At the Pardeik’s pull to the top of the driveway and walk back down to the gardens near the pond and the woodland garden on the south side of the driveway.   At Dawn Kendall’s pull up the driveway to park.   

Carpooling is always suggested for the summer tours.   It saves on gas, parking space, and gives you friends with which to discuss what you have just seen at your last stop.   It is also suggested that you eat while on the road driving to the tour sites and also stop to use the bathroom while driving as none of these sites have a public restroom.   

Our August 11th tour will be of Jim Slezinski’s gardens in Lake Orion.  Jim has tropical gardens that will make you wonder how he can grow these plants in Michigan.   He also has a pond with multiple waterfalls and streams. 

I look forward to seeing you at the Tour in Clio & Flushing on July 14th from 3:00 PM until 7:00 PM.

Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President


Next Meeting- Will be a Garden Tour on July 14th, 2022 in Clio and Flushing at the homes of Karen and Larry Erickson, Janis and Dennis Pardeik, and Dawn Kendall.   The self-guided tour will begin at 3 PM and end at 7 PM.  I am writing directions to go from the site furthest East to the site furthest West.

EMHS June 2022 Newsletter

 

Eastern Michigan Hosta Society
June 2022 Newsletter

Note from the President- Our last meeting of a potluck and reacquaintance meeting was a great time for all of us to catch-up on the last two years of each other’s lives.   Getting to sit and talk with members that we have not seen for two years was good for the soul.

 

Something to think about is the possibility of making at least one of our indoor meetings in the spring a “get-reacquainted” meeting where we will do just as we did for the May meeting last month, a potluck and not have a speaker.   Our February meeting requires a speaker to drive in February Michigan weather usually from a distant county.   This would give us a chance to discuss the year’s events and plan for the rest of the year without taking time for a speaker.    You can email me your thoughts on this subject and I will compile the comments for the EMHS Board to discuss at the November Board meeting.  

Those members that owe membership dues for 2022 will have the date listed in red in the directory.   Dues are still only $5 per year/per household and can be paid at any meeting or you can send your dues to Barb Hunter, the EMHS Treasurer at her address listed in the directory.  

Our June event is a Garden Tour on June 9th, 2022 in the Durand area.  The Tour sites are at the homes of Teresa Dillon, Mike Scherbovich, and Angela Nelson’s business, East Michigan Native Plants.   Bring cash with you for the East Michigan Native Plants site as Angela will be selling plants.   The time frame for the tour is 3:00 PM until 7:00 PM.   Please adhere to this time frame to be courteous to the owners.   Car pooling is suggested to alleviate parking issues.   All EMHS Members, Friends, and any Guests are welcome to attend the tour.   Below you will find the Directions to the tour sites.   Please remember to use the restroom on your way to the tour sites as there are not public restrooms at these owner’s homes.   As per the EMHS Board decision last year, there will be no meeting or potluck at the summer tours.   Bottled water will be provided by the owners of the two garden sites, but it is suggested that you have your favorite soft drink in the care with you since our summer garden tours are usually a bit of a drive for most and in the heat of summer.   Dehydration can make you feel weak, tired, and can be deadly if your electrolytes are affected severely.   Keep in mind what lack of water does to your favorite plants in your garden, then apply that thought to your own health.  

Michigan Hosta Society will be having their annual Plant Sale and Leaf Show at Hidden Lake Gardens on June 18th.   I am attaching the MHS Flier to this Newsletter email so you can have all the information about the sale and leaf show.

 I look forward to seeing you at the Tour in Durand on June 9th from 3:00 PM until 7:00 PM.

Sincerely,
Glen Pace
EMHS President

Next Meeting- Will be a Garden Tour on June 9th, 2022 in the Durand area.   The self-guided tour will begin at 3 PM and end at 7 PM.  On the tour will be Mike Scherbovich, Teresa Dillon, and Angela Nelson of East Michigan Native Plants.   I am writing directions to go from the site furthest East to the site furthest West. 

Mike Scherbovich- a butterfly enthusiast with a garden dedicated to feeding and raising butterflies.  10870 Garrison Rd. Durand, MI 48429 Ph: 248-221-9815

            Directions: Take I-69 West to Exit 123 (M-23/Sheridan Rd).  Turn right (South) drive

April 2022 Newsletter

 

Note from the President- The EMHS Membership has voted to have our first in-person meeting since COVID started.   So, on April 14th, 2022 we will have a Mandatory Mask, No Potluck Meeting at the Mayfield Township Hall in Lapeer.   Our speaker will be Aaron Strouse who will present “Isle Royale, My Journey”.   Aaron has done multiple presentations for EMHS including Michigan’s Native Orchids, Michigan Native Wildflowers, and Michigan’s Waterfalls.   He is a fantastic speaker and an excellent photographer that always brings photos from his presentation to sell while he is at our meeting.   What a way to celebrate our first meeting, we get to see one of our own state’s treasures through Aaron’s camera lens.

 This being our first in-person sit down meeting, I know the membership is going to need time to visit before the meeting starts.   Therefore, we will open the doors at 5:00 PM for networking and the presentation will begin promptly at 6:00 PM.  

Wearing a mask is mandatory for this first meeting.   The EMHS Board will monitor the adherence to this mask mandate and ask any who do not follow the rule to leave the meeting. 

We will discuss the May meeting plans at the April meeting, but my current plan for the May meeting is to have no speaker, reintroduce our potluck as we always knew it, and to do no more than to enjoy seeing each other without masks, with our legendary potluck, and catch up on each other’s lives over the past two years.   This is of course pending on that there is not another surge in the COVID virus cases.  

 The rest of the meetings for 2022 have also been planned with only the June meeting not quite finalized.   For the summer we will be touring gardens of both EMHS members and EMHS friends.  You can plan on seeing gardens that we have never visited before and all of them are going to be a treat.   The year’s plans will be presented at the April meeting. 

 Since we had no meetings in 2020 or 2021 the Membership dues were waived for these two years per a vote of the EMHS Board.   Marlene and I have gone through the membership records and have updated the Membership directory membership dates.   Please review the directory and check your status.   If the year is in red next to your name, you need to pay dues.   Such as, if you see 2021, it means that the last dues you paid were in 2019 and because we gave you credit for 2020 and 2021 your dues need to be paid for 2022.   Dues are still only $5.00 per household per year.

 I am really looking forward to seeing all of you again and hope to see you at the April 14th meeting.     

 Sincerely,

Glen Pace
EMHS President


Next Meeting- is on April 14th, 2022 at the Mayfield Twp. Hall, 1900 N. Saginaw, Lapeer, MI 48446.  This is our regular meeting place located just south of the point of M-24 and N. Saginaw, (the driveway just north of the Cemetery).   

 This meeting is a mandatory mask, in-person, no potluck meeting

 Our speaker will be Aaron Strouse who will present “Isle Royale, My Journey”. 

 The time schedule for the evening is;

1700-   Doors open/ Networking
1800-  
Presentation
1900-
   Break
1915-  
Business meeting

 

EMHS Annual Plant Sale- The plants ordered and paid for will be delivered at the April meeting.  I have attached the Plant Sale Order Form and Flier to the email so you can order plants if you have not already done so.   The EMHS Member gift plants will be available at the April meeting as well.  The only requirement to receive your gift plant is that your membership be current for 2022.   Each paid membership will receive one free gift plant. 

Name Badges- If you need one of the new EMHS name badges, please put your printed name on the sign-up sheet at any meeting or you can email Glen with your request.  Glen will try to have your name badge at the next meeting.
