When you do your best with love, even things that are far from perfect
can be absolutely beautiful.
That’s what we do at the Kruse Garden.

We Kruse Gardeners were delighted that so many garden club members came to visit the garden in July! We are proud of our work and love to have
company. It was a lovely evening! Thanks to Jean Ann, Marcy, and Harlene for the tasty, safe, treats! Greatly appreciated!

Our philosophy at Kruse is: Keep up with the work and the work will get easier. So, we go every Wednesday morning and tend the garden. We’re
waiting for the “easier” part to kick in. This hot dry weather is tough on the plants…especially the new ones. Our biggest investment, the American Hornbeam tree, looks a bit spooky at times but I think it’s settling in. On the other hand, the three new Cranberry Crush Hibiscus are a joy to behold! It’s unusual for a plant to be beautiful it’s first year in the garden. Chris suggested that plant, and it looks like a winner! Thanks Chris…the garden just keeps getting better!

We hope you are enjoying your gardens as much as we are ours. All of us have two gardens, our own, and the Kruse Garden that we share. We have a lot to enjoy! Since our Kruse garden still needs plants, we welcome any donations. Marion Martin recently gave us a nice group of day lilies, Chris
Gicela brought tall bearded iris, and Ruth Kyme donated some lovely pulmonaria ! Thank you ladies! All lovely additions!

I’ll certainly be glad when safe living allows us to see each other in regular monthly club meetings. I miss you all! Until then, stay safe and enjoy
nature and your garden!
