Gardening for Good 2014, 6th night

First order of the evening is always to tend to the garden. There was a lot to harvest-garlic scapes. beets, kale, lettuce. The garden is so lush now. The potatoes have blossoms, the tomatoes and tomatillos are growing, kale is luxurious, beets are thriving, lettuce and basil are flourishing in a raised bed. Lovely blue bachelor buttons and yellow calendula are adding color. Everyone started on a job, and we were weeding, watering, and harvesting. Ann planted two rows of veggies, Kate and Sarah planted two rows of zinnias.

The activity for the evening was flower arranging.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.
 Georgia O’Keeffe quotes (American Painter18871986)

Everyone selected flowers that appealed to them, made an arrangement that they could take with them, and be inspired all week long (hopefully) by the making of the arrangement and the beauty of the flowers.

We sent notes to Rick, who is working on the biggest job, of recovery. We miss you!
