  1. Hi again, Jenny~
    I’m wondering if you received the message I sent earlier this AM? Have a good day & Happy Easter!

  2. Hi Jenny~
    I saw your website in the April HOA newsletter and had a quick look at your info. I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you immediately. Thank so you much for offering to help the neighborhood. Your ideas are wonderful. I love the purple and yellow color combination and all the variety. It’s all very exciting!
    You have a new neighbor across the street from you who enjoys gardening. She’s out of town right now, but I will see if she might be interested in helping you with your project (if you would like). I can probably recruit others, too.
    My best wishes go with you and your project. Hopefully, you get any help you need. Most sincerely, Charlotte

    • Thanks much Charlotte! I am trying to find time to get out to each entrance and get measurements. Will probably not get started for another few weeks, but will give you a call when I know more about what we will do when!
