“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.
