Due to a very busy schedule and other challenges, I’ve neglected to post two blogs that I has been working on in the last week or two. I think this one was from two Thursdays ago but I thought it important to share the photos for sure! Above is Queen Anne’s lace (Daucus carota) which looks great when at peak. The top photo features our Gothic color theme in the entrance garden which continues to fill in nicely. I wont recall all the great staff and volunteer help we had on that Thursday but rest assured it was significant!
