Garden Opening

Today we celebrated the opening of our community garden. Yes, it is snowing outside but this spring is proving unpredictable. Tulips, daffodils and iris are poking out of the ground and the fruit trees are in bud. Lillie’s and garlic are up in the garden and I am pretty sure it is not yet time to plant pollinators.  Never-the-less we celebrated and planted. Curious?

Yes we planted but inside so that the children and participants remained warm followed by a coffee hour. Plan on visiting our gardens at 1907 King Street East, Faith Lutheran church. All are welcome. Enjoy the really great pictures.
