Last Wednesday the Whitestone and Area Horticulture Society welcomed guest speakers Al and Lesley Last who gave a talk on photography.
The presentation was very informative and members asked lots of questions. It’s a great time of year to go out with your camera and take some shots of all the blooming and budding plant life and the many animals that have arrived for the season. The next meeting is Wednesday, June 6 at 7 p.m. in the Dunchurch Community Centre and the talk will be on the various native plants found in our municipality.
