Is This Enough Wood, Boss?

This is the wood that will become a fence for our garden. Dale is passing on this donation of palettes from Blue Rhino. Wayne, Laurie, Martin and I pulled them apart and pulled out the nails. Now Dale will run them through the planer and apply the Salem Woodworking magic to it. This will eventually attach to the Moon Gate. Ashley supervises from Washington.

Mystery of the Poker Chips

Laura Armstrong and the College students from Salem Bible College found thse poker chips while raking through the garden. Just how do you think they got there?

A New Flower!

We have new blooms on our azaleas in the Japanese Garden. Just think of how beautiful they will be in the spring!

Garden Goddess

This is our Garden Godess, Ashley Wagoner. She lives in Seattle, Washington, but she grew up in my neighborhood here in Winston-Salem, so a piece of her heart is here. Now a piece of her talent is here as well. Not only did she design the garden for us, but she rented the tractor and tilled the garden, got several donations for us and and made me work til 8 every night while she was here. Love Ya Ashley. We get so many complements every day, especially from the kids.

Mr. Kevin and the 5th Grade YMCA save the day!

We only had one parent show up for the first workday, but with the help of Kevin Pichardo and his YMCA after school class, we were able to get several plants in the ground.
