Welcome to Malaysia!  12 countries so far.

Spent some time in the garden today planting something different.  Identification Signs!  These were hand made by a group of Master Gardeners and their family members.  Thanks to Betsy and her husband for the woodworking and construction.  Thanks to Dan for the research and printing of the beautiful pictures.  I will soon post the name of all the others involved.  The lamination is first rate.

Lots of teamwork

The stakes holding the signs are tall enough so you don't have to bend over or kneel down to gather the information.

Lots of information

Pink flags mark recent transplants for the watering brigade

Betsy's 5 year old grandson Dylan came by to help.  He spent time with the rubber mallet pounding in the stakes and helping us make sure they were nice and straight.   Very quickly he found the Children's Garden and spent a very enjoyable evening in the dirt!
