A Sure Sign of Spring
While the calendar tells us that Spring should be just around the corner , the current weather is still a reminder that Winter has not let us go as yet. However, a sure sign of Spring appeared yesterday at Queen of Peace when our landscaper, Charles Landscaping Company, arrived to begin the preparation of our grounds for our Spring plantings and outdoor maintenance of our beautiful grounds.
It was good to see the remnants of Winter being gathered up and the grounds being raked and aerated. Our trees and bushes were getting trimmed to be ready to let the warm temperatures and Spring sunshine work their magic. Next will come the fertilizing, plantings and decorative mulch. At the end of this annual process, our flowers and trees will be in bloom and our grounds will once again provide a unique beauty to our Home. Many of the areas of special floral plantings are still under the supervision of our dear Sr. Elisabeth Anne who, being Irish, really does have a green thumb!
As many of you know, the various unique sections of our grounds provide special places for prayer and reflection. We certainly hope our Residents may take advantage of these surroundings before too long, even as we continue to follow social distancing and safety protocols.
The cold and darkness of the Winter is soon going to be replaced with the light and warmth of Spring. We wait for this change with joyful anticipation.
