A Gem On Lake Avenue

Dear Editor,

Stroll down Lake Avenue at 12037 Lake Ave. Lakewood, Ohio and do notice the bright and vibrant organic vegetable garden crowned with beautiful flowers. It is a treasure to behold on a warm summer day.

Sit in one of our lawn chairs with a tall refreshing ice-cold lemonade...and...here you are for all purposes in the country!

Vicki Aaron and Linda O'Malley and others, have started this garden to foster community and to demonstrate how easy it is to bring beauty anywhere you live.

Our council woman Mary Louise Madigan drove by (on her bike) and was wonderfully surprised and delighted by what she did see.

Rows and rows of lush tomato plants, squash, peppers, onions, herbs, lettuce and would you believe catnip!

All this made possible by the generosity of "Mr. Tire" who allowed us to use their land to plant. All this growing under beautiful oak trees...coming soon will be a pumpkin patch.

Is anything impossible to God who can make green trees with black trunks, cast blue shadows on white snow... followed by summer gardens... and pumpkin patches.
