THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,1987 COMMUNITY THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Perfect plant for neglect introduced to garden club By PENNY SEAMAN Garden Club Reporter The perfect plant for neglect was introduced to Ukiah Garden Club this month by Jeaneen Hosterman. Hosterman, the club's horticulture chairman, exhibited the Evening Primrose (Oenothera-berlanic) and told club members this was the perfect plant for neglect. It enjoys hot summers, cr>id winters and poor soil conditions, she said. "It is a showy plant of the perennial family that is real hardy and draught resistant," she said. "The perfect plant for many of us." Club members made plans to prepare flower arrangements for each of the rooms of the new Civic Center in Ukiah, for the center's Sept. 26 opening. Twenty-four arrangements of fresh, straw and silk flowers will be used to brighten the day. Plans were discussed at a potluck luncheon for the club's first meeting of the new year. Theme of the day was "Mad Hatter Tea," and members and guests wore hats they made themselves, or brought out of storage for the occasion. A prize for the most creative went to Celeste Lyman for a chapeau of straw decorated with cherry tomatoes, green beans, lettuce and other real garden vegetables. Donna Branson had the most original hat with an unusual "Taste Tesl"-dcsign comparing Pepsi and Coke. The cutest hat was designed by Barbara Cox who arranged three bears marching around a straw-hat brim. Member were delighted over the first-place blue ribbon and rosette they won for their garden at the Redwood Empire Fair. The amateur garden was ot an old-fashion design with lots of colorful flowers and a path of wood rounds leading to Uncle Wiggley's cabin, and the old gentleman himself. The fair's theme was "Hare's the Fair." Pauline Manning was garden chairman. New members were welcomed at the opening luncheon by Nadinc Scott, prcsidcnt.Thcy were Dwaync Wright, Marge Van Dusen and Renee Pearce. Luncheon tables were decorated with china cups and saucers filled to the brim with fall flowers. The fireplace mantel was decked out for the occasion with a Mad Hatter rabbit in a black hat with flowers. Decorations were prepared by the hostess committee. Members included Donna Branson, Marie Lindoo, Eladah Fowler, Irene Hamilton and Jeaneen Hosterman. Plans for the annual Christmas workshop were discussed. This holiday preparation event will begin Oct. 1. Workshop hours will be 10 a.m. to 3, Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week until Dec. 6. As club members complete Christmas decorations, they may be viewed and even purchased on any work day, although the workshop is preparation for the club's annual Christmas tea, show and sale, to be Dec. 6 this year. The week before the tea, a special committee prepares green wreaths and swags for the Christmas season. Saturday registration is okay for 'Self Esteem' workshop Persons planing to attend the Reynold Bean Workshop, "Raising Children's Self Esteem", can register at the door at 9 a.m., Saturday at the First United Methodist Church. According to Steve Scully, with the Mendocino County Child Abuse/Neglect Prevention Council, the workshop is only S3 and is especially geared for parents and other adults who work with children. He said the workshop is an important one in Ukiah because of the speaker who is a well-known author. Bean has published seven books on various subjects related to children, as well as an elementary principal's handbook, "New Approaches to Administrative Action." His books explore the subjects of raising children's self esteem, teenager's self esteem, what he calls the four conditions of self- esteem, and one called, "How to Discipline Children without Feel- ing Guilty." Bean is a marriage, family and child counselor in private practice and within agencies, is a management and organizational consultant, and is an associate of Association for Personal and Organizational Development in Santa Cruz. He serves on numerous boards of directors related to education and social services. For more information about the workshop, call Scully at 463-2437, ext. 157.
