After much anticipation, the gardening club at Clarendon Hall care home, in Humberston, has resumed today and the Residents did everyone proud creating beautifully arranging pots to display in the garden; everyone got stuck in and had a go.
From Pansies to Violas, the pots were adorned with flowers which some Residents had received for Mother’s Day, along with new plants purchased especially for the activity which was organised by Wellbeing Colleague, Hayley. Vinca, Aqua Legia and perennial wallflowers, were mixed with Hyacinth and Musciri bulbs, for a dazzling effect. See pictured left to right, Residents Amy and Jean. Jean commented, “It feels strange making all this mess inside, but its great fun!”
Amy added, “I know these were a gift for Mother’s Day, but it would be nice to see them planted and thriving in the garden.”
David Page, Kitchen Assistant who is also quite green fingered, even came in on his day off to help with the planting; telling each Resident a little about the flowers they were using and asking about memories they had about gardening in the past.
The pots are now decorating the front doorway at the home and can be admired from the lounge and various bedroom windows.
Admin Colleague, Stephanie, remarked, “It was a delight to walk through the lounge and see so many smiling faces, everyone really enjoyed themselves!”
