PLANTING SPREE: The inside as well as the outside of the Women's City Club was abuzz with activity yesterday. While Ann Arbor Garden Club members and guests met for lunch before the beginning the annual spring garden tour, members of the Ann Arbor Branch of the National Farm and Garden Club gathered outside to plant new shrubs, trees and flowers around the new addition. Mrs. Karl Malcolm, jr., (left) and Mrs. W. Kelly Goss arrived at 9 a.m. ready for a full day's work planting marigolds, petunias and trees. Both the Farm and Garden Club donated the money for the new plantings.
FROM A STORY BOOK: This very elaborate cooky, made and decorated by Mrs. C. Merie Dixon, a member of the Ann Arbor Garden Club, appeared on one of the very authentically decorated foreign Christmas trees at the Women's City Club yesterday. Her trees showed the early Germany style. The cooky is in the form of a gingerbread house.
Holiday Potpourri: A simple and effective mantel decoration was made by Mrs. Robert Ellis of Overridge Dr. She has combined a Madonna figurine with tall copper candlesticks. To match the candlesticks, she has painted some of the baubles with copper paint and the others are in blue to match the color in the figurine. The candles also are blue. The arrangement is st in a bank of Scotch pine branches. It was designed for the Ann Arbor Garden Club's Christmas tea held recently at the Women's City Club.
