Our Adventure

“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.” ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Two years ago next month, the Homeward Bound Memorial Gardeners put on their “big boots” to rescue an acre of weeds and bring forth a garden. And what an adventure it has been!


Today, while Peggy and Steve began dividing the iris,


Ina, Sarah and I installed the entry beds.



We got to reminiscing about how far we have come in just the last year.

California Garden last September…


and now:


Herb and St. Francis Gardens last fall…


and now:


What a difference a year makes.

Returning a tool to the garage, I caught a glimpse of Lilly piling into a car and heading to her forever home.


She’s one of our special needs dogs who has been waiting a while for just the right family. My heart skipped a beat and I was reminded of what this labor of love is for. Happy new life, Lilly…off to new adventures! We will miss you, beautiful girl.

    So happy for Miss Lilly. I hope she has a wonderful life.
    The garden has taken a lot of time and hard work but has flourished with beauty and love for furry gentle souls and their humans.
