Want to See the Hospital Garden?


This garden is located between the maintenance and patient wings of our new Heath Center/Hospital.   The second photo (sans the garden) is what patients on the north side of the hospital wing had too look at before this garden was created last year.

It began as a Master Garden Project, but is now being maintained by a small, local garden club to which I belong.  Click on "Gabby Garden Gals" website to see the entire post and other photos.

Red Admiral butterfly lands on Asters.

This bed is 40 feet long... hard to get a photo of the entire garden!





This was a beautiful day..
Hope the weather was as wonderful in YOUR environment!  :-)

It's nice for the patients to have pretty flowers to look at. I clicked the Gabby Girls link and it took me to he painted umbrella story.

I love the asters and the collaboration of like-minded garden gals. This is a lovely garden and I'm sure the patients are very pleased to look out upon it.

That's a much nicer view than just a tower. Great job!

Shady Gardener said...

Beth, I love asters! I will be taking a couple more photos with a few more new additions to the "dioramas," and garden itself. :-)

Grace, I appreciate your leaving a comment. Hope I can get around more soon.

I believe so too, "Casa!" There are plans for just a few more things... 2 more trellises and clematis, etc. :-)

What a neat project and community spirit of the "garden gals." I do like those asters in the fall....

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Rosemary! I'm going to post a couple of updated photos I took today. :-)

Hi troutbirder, It's a great project! Fun, too. :-)

A very worthwhile endeavour. We were involved in a similar project at an extended care facility here, I think the patients really enjoyed it.

A garden is very important in a hospital. Nature as in garden is very therapeutic. It accelerate the healing process of diseases.

So nice to have a little garden by the hospital. The group is doing well keeping that looking so great.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi sensible! I am positive your patients love it!

Pest control, Thanks for your visit, too. I am certain you are right.

Thanks gardener friend!
