Here are some pictures of the various gardens at the Memorial.  Some of the pictures were taken before the flowers were at their peak, so they don't show how really pretty they have been.  I just wanted to show all of the gardens, so you can see how much there is to do to take care of all of them and also how pretty the flowers are.  Our Boss, Joe, told us he has never seen the Memorial look this good so we have felt really happy about that.  The hard work has paid off.  All of the bulbs were planted last fall, so we just get to see the results of the last missionaries' hard work.  We have spent lots of time weeding, pruning, putting down mulch and transplanting flowers.  The biggest thing is weeding because everything grows so fast and I don't know half of the weeds from the flowers.  I error on the side of not pulling anything up that might be a flower.  I do know what a dandilion looks like and have pulled plenty of them.

Here we are at the Monument with the flowers.  It is a little cloudy so the colors aren't as bright

Here are the different gardens.
