It's time to sleep-It's time to rest
So that next year we can be our best
The Norwich Women’s club and some local volunteers do an amazing job in all seasons to keep the garden looking fine.
Most perennial plants go into a state of dormancy, or winter rest, as a result of the cold temperatures and shorter daylight hours of winter. These sleeping plants lose their stems and leaves and are dormant, but are not dead! They will re-grow from their roots with the arrival of spring.
These plants were left to stay to say goodbye to fall and hello to winter
This crew is working hard to put the plants to sleep
Just some of the crew that showed up for planting duty during my surprise visit last year.
These photos below are from a story that was done this past July
I think the person who is pointing may be the officer in charge of this landscaping crew.
It takes a village (of volunteers that is.)
Looking great and on there way to go! go! go! and grow ! grow! grow!
