Apparently, there is another Ocean Shores in another part of the world, and they have deer…
The Ocean Shores & District Garden Club secretary, Claire, was a little perplexed when she was replying to a lady named Marilyn who showed interest in coming to the club meeting last week.
I moved to Ocean Shores in September and was hoping to find a garden club.
I was hoping to learn more about how people garden, especially with the deer population here.
Claire was very curious and intrigued about the possible deer of Ocean Shores. She responded to Marylin with all the club details of time and location of meetings and other events and was happy to welcome the new member to the Far North Coast club.
This came from Marilyn…
Looking forward to first meeting
Thank you, so much, for your reply. I’m looking forward to attending my first meeting Monday.
I’ve never been to a club meeting. I haven’t had time for gardening in years.
The house we moved to had no plants at all. I just started planting 80 pots of daffodils, lilacs, snowball bushes, and a few other plants.
Have to get several peonies still, too. I’m planning on building a greenhouse this year too. I’m sure I’ll have lots of questions going forward.
See you Monday!
I think you have us confused with another garden club.
Ocean Shores is in the Northern Rivers 30 minutes past Byron Bay.
Deer aren’t a problem here and the flowers you mention we would love to grow but aren’t suitable for a subtropical climate.
Intrigued to know where you live.
Oh no! Are you in Australia?!
I’m in Ocean Shores, Washington USA! I thought I finally got the right one. I typed in my city and state and thought it sounded right. Darn!
Well, I’m sorry for taking your time, and the confusion. Thank you anyway. The search will go on, I guess.
What Marilyn may not know is that Ocean Shores was originally a land holding owned by a company – Wendell West of Washington.
The development had the backing of American singer Pat Boone. Ocean Shores was named after Boone’s residence in Ocean Shores, Washington in the United States.
It really actually is a small world after all.
