An outdoor book nook: a community garden from the library

The John Trigg Ester Library called for volunteers on Planting Day, and boy, howdy, did it get them. Almost twenty people showed up to help beautify their community. Here's some photos of the resulting garden, taken by JTEL board member Molly Rettig a week or two later.

Rhubarb bed in honor of Pat Garner.

Wild rose on the roadside with the gazebo in the background and delphiniums between. Ansgar Clausen was famed for his delphiniums.
