Flora in Winter is taking place at the Worcester Art Museum from February 29 - March 3.

GCFM Designers, Ruth Evans and Thelma Shoneman, will create two original interpretations of Woman at Her Toilette, giving a unique look into their process and inspiration.
GCFM’s Floral Design Workshop is presenting Parallel Design with Lisa Pattison, Flower Show Judge, on April 12th from 10 - 12 PM which will be held In Dedham. Click here for more details and sign up.
Treat yourself to a trip to the Berkshires over the next few weeks and visit the Fitzpatrick Greenhouse Berkshire Botanical Bulb Garden which is running from February 21-March 17th. Admission is free daily from 9 AM - 4 PM.
We concluded our 3 webinars that were offered by our wonderful and very knowledgeable GCFM Treasurer, Beate Bolen. We are very pleased with the attendance and the gratitude from the many club members who attended. The PowerPoint will be posted on our website for your viewing soon. Also, please note that the RESOURCES page on our GCFM website does have a Treasurer’s corner on the bottom right with many downloadable forms for your convenience. We are indebted to Beate for her knowledge and for the time she devoted to creating the PowerPoint. Her time for the presentation over 3 evenings was very generous of her to give. Beate has offered to continue to answer questions if you need her help in understanding specifics. She is a gift to GCFM! Thank you, Beate.
ANNOUNCING A NEW EMAIL FOR PLANT SALE FLIER SUBMISSIONS: Plant sale flyers are starting to trickle in and are being posted on our website. If you have created a flyer and would like to post it, please submit directly to a new email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy each day.
The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.
