Rose Buds Ready to Pop!
By Linda Pitra
It was a pleasure seeing so many of you at the last general meeting and seeing such a large show of hands to help in the rose garden. And the following Thursday there were 18 of us distributing the mulch and accomplishing our more routine tasks of deadheading, weeding, sweeping, and watering! Thanks so much for all the support!!! It’s amazing how mulch gives that finishing touch and unifies a garden. Little did we know there would be a wedding on Sunday with a photoshoot taking place in the rose garden! What good timing!
We have re-instituted the past practice of sign-ups for our weekly work party. We need five volunteers for every Thursday at 8:30. Please use the signup sheet we’ll have available at each General Meeting. In addition, we will continue to send out an email blast every week welcoming drop-in participation (to visit or work). We love to see everyone!!!
Although all 50 plus roses are small, we have had a few blooms and are happy to say at least a dozen buds have formed and are ready to pop! It’s thrilling to see the fruits of our labor appear in glorious color. Below are some photos (compliments of Marissa Comple) of our mulch distribution work party! Enjoy!
