Birds in our Locale
Our summers provide us with bountiful gardens and our open spaces provide us with beautiful and inspiring creatures. The bird photographs this month were taken at Starved Rock State Park near Ottawa, and around Morris, Illinois, by Brian Murphy.
Brian is an amateur photographer who enjoys getting pictures at sites around his home. Open spaces away from the city are favorites of many Illinois birds while others love the backyard feeder.

Alsip Nursery presentation
Our upcoming September 7, 2017 meeting is the kick-off for the garden club's new programs. Come and join us at 6:30 pm at the library for Fairy Gardens with Alsip Nursery! Our nursery representative, Ralph, will share his knowledge. Late summer is blessing us with pleasant, sunny, mild days. The gardens are bursting. If you have extra produce overwhelming you bring it to the meeting to share with our non-vegetable growing members.
