Our volunteers came in and did a great job before the rain caught up to us around 11 am. Above are Eva (left) and Kathy continuing to do battle with the weeds in the sunken garden. The ladies have advanced over 75% of this space and are headed towards victory soon. We’ll plant up these openings soon and hope the next wave of weeds isn’t as tough to remove. Kay was also in for weeding and did a nice job out front in the entrance garden before getting saturated. We had Alan, Larry H., Lloyd and Pat M. out front this morning “lifting” our spring tulips (Tulipa). We do this every year as we put in a new color each fall. The boys almost finished before it became too muddy. Dr. Gredler and Bill O. did some mowing while Del continued his painting project. Dick H. had some repairs while Bob K., Dave, Jim and Vern continued on a multitude of carpentry projects. Gary S. came in for label work while we also saw Rollie, Dr. Yahr, Art H. and many others.
Big John and Terry both had plant pick-up jobs today while both also worked on myriad garden tasks. Lots more plants came back to the yard today and we only have a couple trips left. Cindy worked on weeding, inventorying the elephant ear collection, planting and many other tasks. Cheryl had some planting and tidying duties and spent some time inside today. Janice spent time checking over our anticipated delivery items, matched labels, put together the cutting display and had other duties as well. Further below are some additional photographs from today.
