MIFGS 2016 Update: Construction Day 9…

Bethany WilliamsonDay 9 is just about to get underway and I have been up since 5:00am worrying about what we need to do next and what have we missed.  I was speaking with a few of the other designers and it was interesting that it wasn’t just me, they all go through the same process. I then asked our project manager Steve Lowe and he was the same. His words were “absolutely, wake in a cold sweat screaming, check the levels”.  So for today’s post I want to highlight the people that make a garden like this possible.  For the record everyone of these people are giving up something to be here and for that I am exceptionally grateful. Lynne McCarthyMike Antique Perenials

Jason and Ned

They work in the rain, they have been working in 38+ degree temperatures and they have worked late into the night but they still smile and the workmanship is wonderful to watch.
