Garden of Hope – Find the Joy 

While the last week or so has been rather chilly, the warm weather is just around the corner.  What are you going to plant this summer?  In addition to plants, if you took home a rock from last year’s garden, don’t forget to drop on by and plant it among the flowers. 

Don’t forget to put out your lawn signs from last year, if you have one.  For those of you who need a sign, stay tuned – more are on the way.
