We had a great Work Weekend preparing the grounds for the Ordination on November 1st. Susan (right) who is resident at the vihara gifted beautiful ‘deer resistant’ flowering plants to cheer up the gardens around the house. Thanks to Marina with her daughter Elena, Neil, Marci (left), Eunice, Claire and Julie for being part of this wonderful two days. Unfortunately we forgot to tell the deer that the flowers were deer resistant and they have already nibbled a few!
