Plum Grove Garden Club plants flowers, vegetables at Clearbrook group homes
Its members live in Arlington Heights, Cary, Palatine and Rolling Meadows, and it turns out, their new initiative blossomed and yielded benefits not even these lifelong gardeners could have predicted.
"We call it garden therapy because the residents can do it with us," said Connie Sanofsky of Palatine. "It's a sensory activity, where they can learn about how to grow flowers and vegetables, and enjoy the benefits afterward."
The six men who live in the Whitcomb group home eagerly donned work gloves to help plant flowers in front of their raised ranch home.
While a pair of landscaping companies -- Bolder Landscaping in Mount Prospect and Acres Group in Plainfield -- donated the mulch and helped to trim and reshape the beds, the gardeners got down on their hands and knees to plant the flowers.
They ranged from perennials, such as purple coneflowers, black-eyed Susans and day lilies; to annuals that included begonias, marigolds and petunias, as well as rose bushes, ground cover and native grasses.
"This is fun -- and rewarding," said Kay Marguerite of Palatine, a near 40-year member of the garden club. "And it's nice to see all the residents working hard and so excited about this."
Mostly, the clients were interested in the vegetable garden, planted in a raised bed in the backyard. The chance ... Jun 14, 2018
Photographers challenged to capture Thornton Hall flowers and history for new competition
THE NORTHERN ECHO has teamed up with Thornton Hall gardens, on the outskirts of Darlington, to run a photography competition over the first half of the summer.
Thornton Hall is a remarkable 16th Century farmhouse two miles outside Darlington where the formal gardens got lost over the centuries and under the hooves of livestock.
However, resident Sue Manners has spent the last 30 years rediscovering the walled gardens with their raised beds leading up to a belvedere, and she has added new features like a waterfall and a wildlife pond, so that now they are one of the finest of their kind in the region.
She opens on Wednesdays in June and July until harvesting takes up all of her family’s time. Homemade lunches and afternoon teas are available from one of the outhouses, and all proceeds from the £7 admission charge going to charity. This year, Thornton Hall is supporting the air ambulance, and Alzheimer’s and prostate cancer research.
Photographers are invited to enter their pictures taken at Thornton Hall into two categories: flora and fauna, and heritage.

Flowers, volunteers return to Arlington for Memorial Day weekend tradition
WASHINGTON — As volunteers honor fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery this weekend by placing roses at headstones, those who are also interested in helping the effort can do so with a donation.
“Our goal is to make sure that every headstone gets a rose in front of it. That would be about 280,000 roses. And then making sure that every visitor on Monday gets a flower to place at the headstone of a loved one,” said Robin Penaherrera, founder and director of the nonprofit Memorial Day Flowers Foundation.
“Ten dollars will place a rose on 12 headstones; $100 will actually get you a bucket of 125 roses,” said Robin Penaherrera, founder and director of the nonprofit Memorial Day Flowers Foundation. (Courtesy Memorial Day Flowers Foundation)
The tradition started in 2011 and has grown to include 31 other cemeteries across the country.
At Arlington, at least 1,200 volunteers are expected to take part this year. Last year, they had 750. A large number of volunteers are Boy and Gir...
