The long border on the lower path
Due to the current pandemic, we respectfully inform you of the following:
We request that you register your plan to attend. Members may email David Teager, or use the Contact form. Guests are welcome as long as we have a headcount. Note that Mill Fleurs generally charges a fee for private tours; this is a treat for DVHS to attend.
You must bring a mask, and we insist that you wear it if you are chatting with other people who are not in your personal group. Respect the current “social distancing” guidelines. The garden is quite large, and we are providing plenty of time for touring, so you'll be able to get a “breather” as you need.
It is suggested that you bring your own lunch, or plan your day accordingly. We will provide small bottles of water, freshly prepared (hands-off) “sun tea,” and perhaps some of Barbara's home-made treats, individually wrapped.
While you're bringing things, bring chairs for seating. You can have your lunch in the garden or in the ice house, distanced from others, but you'll likely want to sit for the auction.
Please disinfect the restroom before and after each use. Sanitizing wipes will be provided.
For those of you who need to pay your dues, we will have a station where you can drop in a check (put "Dues" on the memo line), or complete your dues paperwork to include with cash. $10/household is not much to ask!
Dress for the weather. The event will be held rain or shine.
Auction rules for this meeting:
You may sit with your carpool companions, but groups must maintain social distancing.
We ask that you bring no more than two plants, clearly labeled so no handling is required to see the name. Hostas are preferred, but one of your two plants can be a non-hosta if you are prepared to speak about it.
During the auction, plants may remain where placed to minimize handling (or we'll wear gloves).
Payment must be made by check so we do not need to handle cash. Bring your own pen, and put "Auction" in the memo line to distinguish your payment from a dues payment. After payment you may retrieve your plants yourself.
Please be flexible, as rules may change.
