Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted to this blog. As you may know, I’m chairman of the Garden Committee here at Horizon House. The Committee has decided to dedicate the month of June to the Gardens. That means that I’ve spent the last few weeks tied to the phone and the computer lining up things to happen EVERY day in the gardens here.
We will have parties, talks (Audubon, Organics in the garden and Herbs-growing, harvesting and cooking). There will be meditations, tours/walks, exercise, and to get us “off campus” two trips to Botanical Gardens here in Seattle area! I think it will be a lot of fun.
The purpose of this concentration on the Gardens is that we have all (including the gardeners) been kind of locked out of our gardens for almost two years, while there has been construction going on. Gardens have been dug up and replanted. Things have died, but been replaced. Some gardeners have transferred their gardens to others, and a few gardens have been reclaimed by Horizon House, while those gardeners were assigned other beds. It has been a real brouhaha!
Anyway, we’re sure many people have forgotten that the gardens are even there, and new residents are perhaps unaware of their existence. SO it’s TIME to re-introduce everyone to the three lovely Garden Levels here at our home!
This past week, I traveled down and took some pictures of life that is emerging after that long sojourn. I’ve interspersed them here on this page.
