Archive for June, 2019

Here, where I live at Horizon House, in downtown Seattle, WA it has been “June In Our Gardens” month.  I am chairman of that “happening”, so, May (preparation month) and June have been incredibly busy for me. Needless to say, I haven’t taken the time to work on my blog AT ALL! Sorry about that!

It has been a very busy journey, but a totally satisfying one.  I have gotten so many comments about the joy the gardens here bring to our residents.  They have loved the lectures, tours and parties that brought them into the gardens. It has helped them enjoy the outdoors and the wonderful colors, smells, creatures and camaraderie they have found there.  Which was of course, the very purpose of having this grand month of total Garden immersion! I wish you could all have joined us!  I’ve included a few pictures from our gardens and also from the trips we have taken.  Be prepared…GARDENS prevail!

Here is the Calendar for the month.  As you can see, every day is occupied! Calendar — Month — 6:1:19 to 6:30:19

We started with a little lesson on how to use our grills, so we could bring our “grillables” out for dinner.  A good place to start!  A very relaxed lesson was gratefully accepted!UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2683Here are some pictures from Volunteer Park Conservatory…in the Cactus “house”.  Spectacular isn’t it?

We also ventured to the Japanese Gardens. It is so peaceful and pretty there.

There were other things going on every day, as you could see by the calendar, but I think this is enough to give you a flavor of what transpired.

And now onto July!
