We had a beautiful morning!! Thanks to Ivy and Mike Wilcox and Marylou Knasiak, much was accomplished. The leaves and trimmings were cleaned up from beneath the 'Otto Luyken ' laurels, some weeds were pulled and some were sprayed again. There were some annuals planted at the front entrance and the bellbox was filled with soil, again. I don't know where it goes every year! It's as if it's a portal to ----- ?? Again, some junipers were trimmed around the walkway.
Next project will be to till behind the bellbox and lay mulch in prep for replanting coneflowers that were dug out. Also, have a few non invasive butterfly bushes to plant.
Our next regular PED is Thursday May 21st. Watch b'msgs. for time.
