Elizabeth Park C&S Display

Putnam Greenhouse at Elizabeth Park, Hartford.

I was over at Elizabeth Park in Hartford this weekend, to drop off some plants and fliers for an educational display of cactus and succulent plants put together by the Connecticut Cactus and Succulent Society. I met Lisa Silvestri of the Friends of Elizabeth Park there, and we got the plants to a favorable place in the public greenhouse, then talked for a while about plants and the park. The F.o.E.P. even provided lunch at the Pond House, which was a treat.

The display is mostly basic stuff, but maybe it will get people interested in succulent plants or attract some new members to the CCSS. Stop in and check it out: the display will be there until March or so. Next year, I'd like to get the cactus club to Elizabeth Park for one of our official meetings, so it was nice to make some contacts with the Friends.
