Our volunteers included Nancy (above) who continued painting our giant Adirondack chair and many other items. Kay (below) did a nice job tidying in three different areas and never had trouble finding weeds to decimate and debris to collect. Kathy did a nice job continuing her substantial mulching project and Urban was in to size up some pruning for tomorrow. Stan worked in the Japanese garden and Jumbo Jim stopped by to plan out some work later this week in the gardens. Dr. Gredler went out for aerating and mowing while Bill O. also did some mowing after accomplishing some turf repair. Bob K. was a big help with many tasks today. Maury ran errands for us and we also saw John J., Dr. Yahr, Lynn and many others today.
The grounds staff kept busy with myriad tasks. Larry ran irrigation all day as we are still quite dry after missing the rain on Saturday. Larry also repaired irrigation problems and helped prepare our water features. Cindy and Cheryl worked together today on potting up tropicals, shifting plants out to the greenhouses (no small task) and did a super job tidying up in the Nancy Yahr Memorial Children’s Garden. Janice worked on Spring Plant Sale preparations, planting, watering, preparing the cutting display and other tasks. Big John and Terry did a nice job installing obelisks, containers, signs and the guys helped get the wishing well moved successfully in to place (thanks Todd). I worked on various projects and took advantage of the heat and sun to spray more herbicide in an area that really needed it! Enjoy the color below (photos all from today).
