Aldersgate Garden Club learns about ‘Nicodemus flower’

Aldersgate Garden Club learns about ‘Nicodemus flower’ The Aldersgate Garden Club held its monthly meeting in August via Zoom at Noon. Cynthia Humes, president, called the meeting to order. Charlotte Scott gave the devotion “Wisely Weeding” from Psalm 139:1-6, 23-24, followed by prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. The minutes were approved as submitted by Secretary Jackie Westfield. The Financial Report was approved as emailed with discussed changes by treasurer Lelia Johnson. Nine members were in attendance with Edwina Robinson serving as hostess. Robinson presented a program on the Nicodemus Flower. She opened with referring to the flower as being called the Evening Primrose or the Night Rose. It is a fascinating and interesting flower. She has found herself comparing the flower with the biblical name Nicodemus in the Book of John 3:1-10. These scriptures talk about the ruler of the Pharisees who came to Jesus by night with a question of growth. The flower only opens up at night and closes at sunrise. The color is a bright yellow representing hope and happiness. When Nicodemus asked Jesus the question, how can you be born again? Jesus answered him, unless one is born again from water and spirit, he cannot be in God’s Heaven. This plant takes water, soil and the hand of God to grow; born from a seed, a bulb, or a small plant. This flower is a native plant and is an Annual. It gets new leaves in late spring from the seeds that have fallen on the ground and grows to a tall 4 to 5 feet stem. The leaves are 4 to 8 inches long and the flower grows alternate of each other, 2 inches wide with 4 peddles overlapping each other.
