I’ve selected the Memorial Garden to be my Tuesday View to share with folks on Cathy’s Words and Herbs garden blog.
And away we go with the bare earth beginning. The outside border is heart shaped to surround those who are gone with love. The Memorial Garden is dedicated to the memory of those who rallied, danced, gathered and labored on The Hill.
Let’s meet the plants. First, the lupines in memory of our hopeful dreamers.
I added this flowering quince brought to us by Erin and Patrick.
The lilac bushes from the top of The Hill. Pat Daigle transplanted them last year with his super large digging machine. He is an artist and moved them with care and expertise. Baby lilac buds are setting.
I call the flowers that come from these roots Beulah’s giant yellow flowers. They are in memory of Kenos Henry. I pulled out a wheelbarrow full of roots that had spread. The wild tall flowers will still be a strong feature of the Memorial Garden.
