  Why are these people smiling?  Floretum is just that kind of place -- friendly and welcoming with good food and high spirits, supportive of the community, and always educational.  These photos are from our November meeting, which began with a bake sale of scrumptiousness from Floretum’s talented bakers.  Carol Jacques of the Arlington Garden Club presented a program about butterflies and what to plant to attract different species.
