Above are Kathy and Eva (right) back in the sunken garden for weeding which has been quite a battle. The ladies finished weeding which was a triumph in this challenging area! The ladies also planted a lot of coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides) in that garden and we focused on planting areas that they just cleared of weeds. The ladies got a bit wet with the showers but are tough as nails. Kay was in for a good portion of the day too working on some prime real estate (weeding/tidying) near the main parking lot. Pat C. was helpful with some clerical duties this morning and continued organizing our surplus perennial signs (which is no small task). Gary spent some major time on signs and labels and cleaned the engraver which is now working like a charm. Below (left to right) are Myrt, Mary, Patty (new volunteer) and Gena. This “Quality Quartet” weeded and tidied our demonstration garden (future Elephant Ear Collection) and moved on to other areas as well. Roy (second photo down) planted and weeded in the shade garden and we had both Dr. Gredler (fourth photo down) and Bill in for mowing and some lawn aeration between rain drops. Larry H. finished lifting tulips in front of the building and Marv continued his improvements in the moss garden areas. Vern worked on carpentry projects and Pat M. did some nice painting on our new Adirondack chairs. My daughter, Dejanique (third photo down) did a nice job weeding and collecting debris in the gazebo garden. We also saw Rollie, Audrey, Dick P., Dick H., Trevor, Mary D., Maury, Dr. Yahr and many others today.
