Project 7×52 – Week 50 – How We Do It

This series of photos is about some of the things we do in the Historic Gardens to protect our plants, or in one case, to protect our visitors!

Hilling our Roses…

Lots of people ask us about our methods… so a little show & tell seemed appropriate!

Project 7×52 – Week 45 – Gathering Dust

It seems that life gets busier and busier, leaving less and less time for the important leisure activities. Yet these very activities will keep us healthy and better able to handle our stressful lives. It’s a vicious circle…

#1 – The Dread-mill…

#2 – Start! Yes, that’s what I need to do…

#3 – Weights…

#4 – And more weights…

#5 – Mat hasn’t been unrolled in years…

#6 – Stationary bike has been, well, just that… stationary in every way!

#7 – My runners… NOT!

I simply HAVE to wipe the dust off these things and start using them!
