The Gonzales Garden Club chose Ashley Homestore Furniture at 810 W. Hwy 30 as its Commercial Landscape of the Month for its oblong beds of azalea and Little Gem Magnolia neatly bordered by healthy green boxwood.

The Gonzales Garden Club presented its annual flower show at the Gonzales library on April 4. Members displayed twelve floral designs reflecting the theme “Through a Child’s Eyes.” Amaryllis blooms dominated the horticultural specimens that also included mock orange (English dogwood), African violet, peace lily, maidenhair fern, pansy, indigo, and iris. The exhibit ended on April 5.

Library visitors voted for the People’s Choice Award which will be announced at the club’s May meeting. Members Weezie Cashat and Janis D’Benedetto hosted the event.

GGC Books and Library Civic Involvement Chairman Janis D’Benedetto presented Library Director Angelle Deshautelles with four copies of The Saved Seed. The book is recommended by the National Garden Club Federation as an “early reader book written to educate elementary children about the life cycle of seed plants.”
