Darla, Lucy and team have done it again, playing beat-the-clock against an inclement spring with a May 4th wedding deadline: edging, weeding, primping with their custom-designed hanging baskets to add colour and pizzazz and voila! We were wedding-ready with no help from Mother Nature, thank you. Boy was that close! Two weeks ahead of the wedding The Garden Girls arrived as a team to work for four hours, turning my tears of frustration into tears of joy. One week ahead and the weather warmed enough for me to paint the eyesore trellis a natty aubergine. Then there was a flurry of back-and-forth e-mails and photos from Lucy and Darla at the garden center, guiding me to choose the right contrast of colour and type of flowers for the dramatic baskets, their special trip to drop them off to me, and within days of the wedding the garden glowed with three gorgeous demi hanging baskets popping on the trellis. On the day of the wedding we had a splash of forsythia, green grass, stunning baskets and a few bulbs up, along with 21 degree weather. Whew! Thanks again, Garden Girls for making our dreams come true and for following through on the promise you made last fall to make the garden ready for our daughter's wedding pictures. It looked magical.
