I've been working as much as I can to try to get The Memorial Garden completed by the 4th. Chip's part was completed today. Some of the flowers haven't come on yet but with some "liquid grow" on them lately they should come on in the next few weeks.



Also spent the afternoon and evening doing the prep and painting on one of Neka's statues for her garden. It is made of concrete and weighs 25 lbs. It is 21" tall. Having painted a few cars, trucks and some rather large peices of equipment over the years, this project was actually A LOT of fun for me.

With the passing of Neka this spring, the Memorial Garden has grown into a much bigger place.

I've actually come up with a new name for the combined space. What do you think of: The Dogomine Memorial Garden. The individual areas within it will be "Chip's Memorial Garden" and "Neka's Memorial Garden"

Rather than posting all of the pix here, you can just Visit the Dogomine Memorial Garden page to see the Photos. More will be added later when the flowers are in full bloom. (sorry, I got a late start planting this year).

The Neka statue is awesome! The whole garden is phenomenal, really. I look at the pictures and know you poured your heart and soul into this.

It looks great Mike, as Ann said it really shows that you poured your heart into this one, we all know how much Neka and Chip meant to you. I think their memorials look just stunning.
