San Saba Garden Club holds March meeting

By Anne Vincent

Chandor: An English Garden Set in the Heart of Texas

Garden Club members took a delightful walk down an imagined ""memory lane" at the March 6th meeting. The club, which had actually visited the lovely Chandor Gardens during the 1940's, no longer has active members who went on the long ago pilgrimage, but the lovely images and descriptions provided a treat to members in attendance. The speaker, Chandor docent, Thresea Killion Tabor, sister-in-law of Rhonda Killion, club Vice President, showed the lovely formal English Gardens in all their glory and gave a brief history of their origins.
