Heidi and Helen join Maggie’s garden

On Saturday, October 7th, the Gardening team transplanted a large hydrangea and two hellebores to the West lawn between the ADA ramp and parking lot.

Fred and Judy Ripley and Leo Guen dug 8 holes in the stony earth to make new homes for the hydrangea roots that were split into 3 parts and the hellebores split into 5 parts.
Maggie the southern magnolia now has 3 Heidi sisters and 5 Helen sisters surrounding her and keeping her company.

The removal of the hydrangea and hellebores is part of a plan to create an enclosed chapel-like space in the East Cloister Garden for the children’s classes during good weather.
The Gardening team, Property and Environmental committees will discuss ways to resurface the area, plant new greenery, and perhaps growing activities space.

Accounting Warden Dennis Reid serendipitously arrived after finishing serving Saturday Breakfast in time to take a photograph of the 3 muddy gardeners.
Fred remarked, “I was planning to go to lunch after this, but now I doubt anyone will take us in this condition.”
