Thinking About Native Plants

We're on a search to learn more about native plants and how to get them back in and invasive plants out.

This looks interesting:

What it might have looked like, complete with ferry-boat landing

We raked and bagged a lot of leaves, picked up trash, and cleared away sticks and branches this past week-end. All of the bulbs seem to have survived the late frost - most of the daffodils are in bloom or about to be, and we're watching to see what appears next.  We've taken to walking by the garden on the way to school each (or almost each) morning, so we see the daily changes.  It is always full of birds, mostly robins, in the morning.  The fact that the garden is being cared for seem to have eliminated most of the messes left by dogs, which is nice.

The Grant Monument Association

The Grant Monument Association has a very nice website full of information on the tomb, its history, and efforts to preserve it.  Have a look at Grant's Tomb.

The Grant Monument Association publishes a semi-annual newsletter that can be viewed and printed from the links below:
