DERRY — Now that the snow of Halloween is melting, it's time for some local gardeners to begin thinking about the holidays.
The season is fast approaching, especially for Derry Garden Club members. They spread out the greenery and hosted the club's annual Greens Workshop on Nov. 4.
A space at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Derry was filled with fragrant evergreens, twigs, leaves, and other floral items suited for a holiday centerpiece.
Every year, club members share their greens, berries and other gatherings from their autumn gardens and yards.
The members then select what they like and make a unique creation for the holidays.
The club has been a Derry fixture since it began in 1935, offering design workshops, garden therapy at area nursing homes, special events, flower shows and community beautification projects, including a children's garden project at the Robert Frost Farm, and other civic projects around Derry.
