Every Rose has its Thorn

Instead of complaining that the rose bush is full of thorns, be happy the thorn bush has roses. – German Proverb 

Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose – Gertrude Stein

Something is missing from the front of D.F.C. The rose bushes are gone. This Thursday we had the melancholic task of cutting down the rose bushes. This is just the beginning of preparations for having the stone retaining walls rebuilt. We were wondering, how long have the rose bushes been there? Any long time members can let us know in the comments section.

Another change you may have noticed is a new garden in the park. The plants in this section have all been moved from the retaining wall area that will be under construction. We hope they’re happy in their new home 🙂


Weeds! Weeds! Weeds!

Its Week One and that can only mean one thing, cleeeaaaaan up! Winter has not been kind to our precious garden. We cleaned up all the dead leaves and debris around the garden, and it left us with a wonderful surprise. Weeds! So this week we have doubled down on those pesky buggers. Armed with no more than spades and knee pads we got to work making room for all the new veggies in our community garden.
