Thank Heaven for Green Thumbs

My sister Robyn and I were inspired to do some yard work over the holiday weekend. We’ve enjoyed visiting the Gardens on Spring Creek and seeing their delightful displays and we’ve been delinquent in moving the truck load of mulch created by City of Fort Collins from the spring storms from our driveway to the yard. Add to that a Saturday free of other commitments, and yard work moves to the top of the to do list.

I’m happy to report that we were successful in moving about a third of the pile, but quickly ran out of steam and passion for the project.  We’ll eventually get the job done, but as we tried to turn the vision in our head into reality on the ground, I was struck by the fact that we have amazing members of the Chamber that do this work every day – and love it!

A very special shout out to our Chamber members Lindgren Landscape, Alpine Gardens, U.S. Lawns, Evergreen Landscape and Sprinkler Co., Krafts Kurbing and Lawn Doctor of Fort Collins.  I am so thankful that you have green thumbs, incredible vision and a passion for turning our community into the beautiful display it is.  I might need all of you on speed dial to get my project done!
