There are still "mistakes" that have been made. I thought I planted a few blooms which would be tall - that didn't happen. I thought I planted marigolds just to keep out the rabbits, and found they are a very powerful flower all by themselves! However, I am very pleased with my organized chaos, and am taking notes for next year.
The ribbons tied to the fence, in my garden shot, are there in honor and memory of our friends. A previous post explained our community has been in the midst of the trauma of the plane crash in Lake Michigan 10 days ago, and to show support our town is decked out in ribbons and signs and celebration of very special people and their families.
