I decided to plant the flowers at the Grotto this morning ,very early, so I wouldn't be in the way if the buildings and grounds committee decides to plant the bushes. We decided to plant the flowers in the mulched area around the trees. Behind the benches would be too hard...not much space and would need weeding before I could plant. They can plant some bushes there. I have the flats of flowers, gardening gloves, and a trowel all ready to get the job done....
and of course.....my trusty green chair. As I've said before...this chair saves my knees. It's not pretty, but the height and the slope in the front of the seat is just right. The newer ones slope up...not comfortable. We have a new watering system thanks to Joe. He told Father that many women don't come to help water, because they don't like to drag the heavy hose up the hill to the garden area. Now we have a faucet at both gardens and the hoses are in baskets behind the Grotto and the big tree. Thanks, Joe.
Here is is all planted. It's the same on both sides. As I finished, people were coming for morning Mass, the buzzards had left their perch on the water tower, people were going to work, and I could go home. I spent a minute there just soaking up the beauty of it all. It's going to be a great day.
