Davis Flower Arrangers meet for holiday workshop
Arrangers will meet for a holiday decoration workshop on Wednesday, Dec. 7. The members-only program will be held at International House Davis, 10 College Park, and will begin at 7 p.m. after a brief business meeting.
Before the workshop begins there will be demonstrations of arranging by three active members of the group who will make table arrangements from identical bunches of florist flowers and greens. Different styles will be apparent as past president Elaine Ginosar, board member Ray Borton and member Katie Koch complete their creations, and comment on them.
Following the demonstration, workshop participants will each make their own holiday decoration from similar bunches of flowers and greens. This is a variation on the “Pandora’s Box” program plan that Davis Flower Arrangers has used in past years.
In order to provide identical materials to each participant, members are asked to RSVP by Dec. 2 to Ruth Shimomura at [email protected] or Barbara [email protected]

Freeze Warning Overnight: How to Protect Your Plants
Howard, and Harford.
The weather service says cities in the alerts include: Washington, DC, Baltimore, Bowie, Suitland-Silver Hill, Clinton, College Park, Greenbelt, Laurel, Camp Springs, Glen Burnie, Annapolis, Severn, South Gate, Severna Park, Arnold, Odenton, Bethesda, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, Columbia, Ellicott City, and Aberdeen.
In Virginia, communities in the warning area include: Prince Frederick, Reston, Herndon, Annandale, Centreville, Chantilly, Mclean, Franconia, Arlington and Alexandria.
The Weather Service warns: “A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.”
If you're a gardener, then you've harvested most of your bounty by now, but there are several frost hardy plants that can survive even if the overnight temperatures drop to 28 degrees. So, leeks, scallions, chives, brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, parsley, beets, carrots, winter squash, pumpkins and sage should be OK, according to the Vegetable Gardener website.
Here are some steps you can take when a frost or freeze threatens, according to TodaysHomeowner.com.
Bring Indoors: Frost-tender plants in containers should be brought inside during cold weather. Dig up tender bulbs and store them in a cool dry place.Water Plants: Water plants thoroughly before a freeze to prevent desiccation and to add insulating water to the soil and plant cells.Protect Tender Sprouts: Cover tender plants overnight with an inverted bucket or flower pot, or with a layer of mulch. Be sure to uncover them in the morning when the temperature rises above freezing.Cover Shrubs and Trees: Larger plants can be covered with fabric, old bed sheets, burlap, or commercial frost cloths (avoid using plastic). For best results, drape the cover over a frame to keep i... (Patch.com)Oct 27, 2016
