Saturday February 17
Winter Meeting

Hosta Soup and Hosta Chat
“Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.”
— Ludwig van Beethoven

Sharing warm soup with friends on a wintry day. What could be better? We ask members to bring a hosta- inspired soup. ‘Clambake’, ‘Orange Marmalade’, ‘Marbled Cream’, ‘Silver Ladle’ — probably not ‘Outhouse Delight’! Members will vote and a prize goes to the best soup. We have electrical strips and will get everyone’s crockpot plugged in (🙄hopefully🙄).

For newcomers, simply match the name of a hosta cultivar with a soup recipe (either new or a favorite), and bring enough to share. Use the Hosta Library ( as a resource. If soup is not your specialty, bring a little something sweet.

Everyone is encouraged to bring garden catalogs, or pictures of your own hostas. We will chat about our gardening plans for the upcoming season and share some short videos.

The door prize will be H. ‘Gold Spring’ a rare “oldie” from a long-ago member of DVHS.

Come hungry at 12:30 (set-up at 12:00). Vote as you eat.

Questions? Call Ed Macfarland. 215-485-7660.
