The Rowan Redbuds Garden Club held its monthly meeting on March 27 at Rowan Public Library. President Anganetta Dover presided.
In business matters, the new slate of officers was approved, and will assume their duties at the May meeting.
Michael Bradshaw and Robert Schwarzwaelder from Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop in Concord presented a program entitled “Return of the Hummingbirds.” There are more than 325 species of hummingbirds, making them the second largest bird family in the world. There are 18 species in North America. They can fly backwards, upside down and up to 60 miles per hour. The program also included a presentation of different types of hummingbird feeders and how to make your own nectar.
In other news, the Garden Club of North Carolina will hold its annual meeting April 13-16 in Winston-Salem.
The next meeting is April 24 and will include a tour of the three-acre Concord Memorial Garden. Members will meet at the Rowan County Cooperative Extension Office at 2727 Old Concord Road at 12:45 p.m. and travel to Concord as a group.
Anyone interested in learning more about plants and gardening is encouraged to attend the garden club meetings. Contact Anganetta Dover at 704-638-0575, anganettadover@fibrant.com or www.Facebook.com/RowanRedbudsGardenClub
