Another Solid Day

Nice shot above of ‘Helen Campbell’ spider flower (Cleome hassleriana) looking great this morning!  I didn’t take many photos today as we had a busy day with lots of volunteer help.  Our grounds staff of Larry H., Alex, Janice, Shania, Ibhar and myself, all had a wide range of tasks.  We did continue to accomplish lots of watering in case the chance of precipitation doesn’t materialize over the coming days.  Other tasks included pruning, weeding, mowing and much more!  Our volunteers included Kathy P., Eva, Bonnie, Marleen, Marilyn, Suzy, Ron R., Lloyd, Bob K., Derrick, Ron Y., Jim, Steve, Vern, Steve, Dick H., Peg, Darcie, Art, Dr. Tom, Mary Kay and many others.
