On Thursday, November 8, 2018 we gathered at Orienta Beach Club for our Annual Fundraiser. It was a glorious day overlooking Long Island Sound with a few sailboats still on the water. After a scrumptious lunch we were treated to a fun and informative talk by Lorraine Ballato writer, speaker, horticulturist and photographer. The subject was Tropicals in our Garden which Lorraine illustrated with lovely slides. I don't think that most of us had ever thought of using tropicals because of our climate. But, after hearing Lorraine's talk, many of us rushed home to investigate how we might include them in our gardens!
