Volunteer TLC Garden- pics!

I've only been gardening for the past 3 years...

Last year I was asked to volunteer to install a
garden in a weed patch in front of our small town
library. The librarian thought of me because I'm the
only one to check out the gardening books!

So after sketching some ideas in water color I met
with the board( not a comfortable roll for me!) who
approved a very small budget of $200 for plants soil
amendments...tools... the whole kit and caboodle.

Then I mustered up the courage to ask for help and
donations (not a comfortable roll for me) and I wanted
you to see the garden that resulted.

A former patient offered to help me with my first trip
to the back lot at Menards and haul the bricks, and a
current patient, with arm in a sling! helped me with
my first retaining wall. A retired libarian brought a
small rototiller, and several stores coughed up some
plants.


The top two pics are last year and the bottom is a
recent pic. - No I'm not in the pics- I'm taking
them!
It truelly is a garden that TLC built and hopefully an
easy keeper for years to come.
