Miss Cora's Garden - Perhaps a Memorial

When I first discussed turning this little plot of sod and soil into a plant bed with the property owner, a friend at church, it was simply to be just that.

This project was planned back in the first month of the year, only awaiting nursery plants to flourish, which had been affected by the odd transition we had from Winter to Spring weather.

Although I believe the deer had a history with the owner, I don't remember the deer having a name until up to or during installation of the plant bed.

If you know the home owner or attend Bethel United Methodist church you may know for whom the deer was named. Cora left us all in body, but not in spirit earlier this year. I didn't know Cora personally, but I do know she was loved and admired by so many.

The plants over which Cora holds domain are a single nikko blue hydrangea, two blushing turtle dwarf geraniums, three hostas of two species and a sago palm.

Over the coming months, years and seasons, Cora should be surrounded by mature and beautiful foliage and blooms. Yet, I tried to arrange this (Most every plant bed should have a focal point/preference.) so she is always seeing the owner off for the day and upon returning home, to a familiar face, and spirit.
