LAKE COUNTY – Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club, members of the Mendo-Lake District and California Garden Clubs Inc. and invited guests from other clubs celebrated the coming of spring and friendship with their Annual "Daffodil Tea," which was held on March 18 at the Bachelor Valley Grange in Upper Lake.


Mistress of Ceremonies Joanne Jameson welcomed guests who enjoyed a wonderful luncheon served by 17 hostesses. Beautiful daffodils were displayed in both small arrangements on the tables and larger arrangements around the room by each hostess.


A wall was decorated with daffodil paintings created by the students in a second grade class at Lakeport Elementary School. Member Pat Hopper, serves as a volunteer art instructor in that classroom.


An educational display of more than 35 identified daffodil species was provided by members Sharon Thorne, June Beto, Heide Thomason and Ann Blue. Daffodils were from Sharon Thorne's garden where more than 1,500 bulbs grow on her property.


Many other daffodils for arrangements were provided by Renker Farms in Kelseyville.


Shirley Estrem was recognized for her 4-foot-tall basket arrangements of daffodils, forsythia, and pussy willows. In addition, the Ka-ba-tin Redbud Arrangers provided more beauty with their outstanding floral arranging talents.


Chairperson for the event, Linda Waterstraat, wishes to thank the table hostesses and club members who helped in so many ways to make this event a success.
