“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…
Herb and St. Francis Gardens last fall…
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.

Amazing job!!! 🙂
Thank you. Wonder what next year’s look back will be! 🙂
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.
Thank you, Cindy.
Lovely progress on the garden and on Lilly and her forever home…what a grand adventure.
So happy Lilly has finally found her forever home. What a beautiful and wonderful thing you guys have done.
Thank you, Carol!
Your garden is gorgeous AND a happy ever for Lily – what a great way to start the week. Thank you!
Happy to make the report!
So glad Lilly has found her forever home — and what joy it must bring to see those gardens come back to life!
Right on both accounts! 🙂
I loved seeing the transformation of the garden – so amazing and beautiful! And sweet Lily – what a happy day! Thanks for including all of us in the transformation of the earth and of lives.
And thanks for joining us on the journey!
