January 2019 Meeting – January 24

Filed under Meetings

Perennials for the Chicago Garden

The speaker for our January program will be Carolyn Ulrich, the Editor of Chicagoland Gardening magazine.  Her presentation will be on “Perennials for the Chicago Garden”.  She describes the program as:

We don’t need to feel sorry for ourselves. We can’t grow everything they grow in England, but they can’t grow everything we can, either. From natives to exotics, we have abundant choices. What’s really important is how we use them. Slides were taken in my Chicago garden and throughout the region.

Carolyn is a self-taught gardener who sat down one day and started writing garden columns, an event she considers akin to a visitation from the Muses in the Classical sense. After a year writing  for the neighborhood newspaper she joined the Chicago Sun-Times for seven years, writing a weekly column called The Cultivated Gardener. She then joined Chicagoland Gardening magazine and is currently its editor.  She has written freelance for Garden Design, Horticulture, House Beautiful, Chicago Tribune and has won Quill & Trowel awards from the Garden Writers Association.

Education: B.A. in English, University of Kansas; M.A.T. in English, Northwestern University; B.S. in Photography, Columbia College; Garden Writers Association, Perennial Plant Association

ENGLISH GARDENS: INCIDENTAL GLIMPSES

Presented by Keith Letsche

In July 2017 one of our Club members, Keith Letsche, spent two weeks touring England. While the tours focused mainly on architecture and history, he managed to snap photos in spare moments of the surrounding grounds of the sites visited. At our next meeting, he will take us on a casual tour through these photographs of the gardens and plantings of about 15 or so of these places. So join us October 25th as we take a glimpse at English gardening.”
