Catching Up: Irene’s Garden

Thursday, August 5th, 2004

When I joined the Mid-Michigan Knitting Guild, I was told that they don’t have regular meetings at the church basement during the summer. (They do have knit in’s regularly every Tuesday night, but no formal meeting.) It was explained to me that there were so many of the knitters who were avid gardeners that this just seemed to work out well.

I know that Evelyn, a woman who has helped me with the kids at Foster Center, is a gardener. Well, so is Irene. And I got to see her garden at her new home, on July 28.

tell you, she has the touch. I know she spends much of her non-working daylight hours out there in these gardens. She has all sorts of colors, all different areas with flowers, she has tall plants and short, plants for spring and plants for summer… and I’m sure plants for autumn as well. It is just plain gorgeous!!!

I was so glad that I got there in time, before the sun had gone entirely. These photos were taken in somewhat dim light but I’ve brightened them up a little using PhotoShop and its miraculous features.

Doesn’t she do a great job? This is true art. Irene, you go, grrrl!!!

I hope that all these photos display well on your screen. There are so many more photographs than words today, and that sometimes doesn’t display right… But there are no more words to say… the flowers speak for themselves.
