Richard Hood, floral designer for 20 years, will present a program for the Friendly Thyme Herb Club at the club's meeting at 10 a.m. Friday at the Ferndale-Linthicum Senior Center.

The center is located at 7205 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. For information on the club, please call Mary Goode at 437-4120 or Lola Zabetakis at 768-0653.

Mr. Hood, who is also a club member, will share tips and pointers on using fresh herbs and flowers to make an arrangement. Members who want to make their own centerpiece can bring containers, herbs and flowers and get help from Mr. Hood.

The hospitality committee will provide refreshments after the program and business meeting.

Prospective members and guests are always welcome.

The recent early summer heat wave didn't stop club members from admiring the herb gardens of some of their colleagues. Five gardens belonging to members were on the club's Second Annual Herb Garden Tour, according to Ms. Goode, publicity chairwoman. Her garden, as well as those belonging to Marie Gish, Cleo McCoy, Helen Patterson and Adele Walter were visited.

"It was a lovely herb tour," said Ms. Goode. "Each garden was so unique. You would think an herb garden is an herb garden, but it was surprising how each one was so different, it's like different personalities."

This free event is part of the county's Summer Reading Program and is open to children entering grades one through six in the fall. Advance registration is not required, but seating is limited.
