We are Back

After a very long pause, and a very strange year, we are finally back!

There is so much to tell. in Fall 2019, we got our wonderful new fence. Then, the pandemic began and forced us to close our gates to the public for more than a year. Fortunately, the new fence is low and neighbors and passerbys could catch a good view of the flowers from the periphery of the garden.

Several gardeners moved out of the city temporarily. For the rest of us, the garden was a welcome haven where we could relax and forget the worries of the world for a little while. Working in the ground, pruning, planting and harvesting gave us the feeling that things will be all right.

We are grateful that all of our members are well. Most of us are vaccinated, and like the city, we are going to open up more and more. We will begin to host events again, too (stay tuned).

Therefore: Welcome back friends!



It is a lovely time in the garden: Irises, roses and peonies are blooming with profusion. Here are a few of our beauties:

The peonies are just starting to open now.
This spectacular columbine was grown from a seed. In the background is our beloved rose “Zephirine Drouhin”.
Irises come in an astonishing array of colors.
