Pertinent Peony Particulars

Peony season is so short that we may not know much about them. Did you know:

  • Depending on the variety, a peony bloom can be 10 inches
  • Peony is the 12th wedding anniversary flower
  • Peonies are the state flower of Indiana and the floral symbol of China
  • They love potassium
  • Peonies come in every color except blue
  • A peony plant can live 100 years
  • Peonies are deer resistant



Bloom Where You Are

After helping finish the planting of flowers, Lee took on the tomato plants. Every gardener takes pride in their green thumbs but none are as proud as Lee.

Nearly all of the homes have raised bed gardens or pots of flowers and vegetables. At this time just one year ago, only one home had gardens.


A Sew-Sew Gift


Letitia learned some basic sewing from her grandmother but wanted to do more. When a sewing machine was donated to the Activities Room, Rachel Rose (staff), knew immediately how it would be put to use. Letitia wanted to make an apron so she and Rachel chose a pattern and fabric and got busy. The result is a beautiful pink apron that Letitia proudly wore throughout Longfellow Center to show off her creation.


A Hole-in-One Kind Of Day


No one made a hole-in-one last Monday at the 15th annual Golf Classic but it was still a perfect outing. The weather was overcast and cool and the rain held off nearly the entire afternoon. Thank you to all of the players and sponsors!
