Garden club recognizes Garden Week in Mississippi

The DeSoto Civic Garden Club recognized Garden Week in Mississippi, which was June 5-11, with the placing of a lovely floral arrangement at the M. R. Public Library in Southaven. 

Club member Carla Proctor’s monochromatic design utilized various shades and tones of the color yellow which traditionally symbolizes friendship. As the summer season begins, daisies were chosen because they encourage new beginnings.

The sunflowers symbolize vitality, intelligence and happiness while the roses are commonly associated with love. 

In presenting this design to the library, the DeSoto Civic Garden Club wanted to welcome all of those that visit the library with an open heart by encouraging reading and the educational opportunities available to them.

The DeSoto Civic Garden Club is a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc., Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc., and The Garden Clubs of Mississippi, Inc., Hills and Delta District.
