The 2022 Hydrangea Festival is over. Much thanks to everyone who helped make this such a success. Here is what everyone is saying:
Feedback from participants:
I thoroughly enjoyed the Hydrangea Happiness Celebration with Mal Condon. It truly was a celebration to have people back together again for Mal's presentation. I learned many new tips for growing, and caring for the multiple variety of Hydrangea's Mal discussed in his presentation.
I wanted to thank all members of the garden club who made such beautiful flower arrangements for each attendee to take home. It was obvious that a lot of thought & planning went into this event. I enjoyed Hydrangea cookies, and cold water while looking at the painted shells after the presentation.
Thank you again for planning, and I hope it becomes a staple event for years to follow.
Thank you so much for putting together this amazing event. I found Mal Condon engaging in lecturing amongst the incredible display of hydrangea. Our community owes you all a debt of gratitude for your efforts. I cannot wait until July 12th for the tour!
This morning’s program was excellent. What a treat to have the presentation (distributed via email). I’m sure that I will refer to it many, many times.
