Lee – Bedrock Garden's hometown – is celebrating its 250th Anniversary in 2016. Jill created a commemorative sculpture now displayed at the town Transfer Station. She has also been working with 60 second graders and 10 friends of Bedrock Gardens to plant 5,000 tulip bulbs. Come see them in downtown Lee this spring!
Stay tuned for more news throughout the winter.
Jill shared this final note:
We are reminded of the last lines of ‘Reluctance’ by R.Frost
'Ah, when to the heart of man
Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
To yield with a grace to reason,
And bow and accept the end
Of a love or a season?'
But we must, and we do, but we are looking forward to your smiling faces in the Spring.
