Last year’s efforts to decorate our church yard with spring crocus blossoms and establish the Thompson Memorial Crocus Lawn was a thing of beauty! So, we plan to plant more bulbs in October and continue this lovely parish planting activity.
Remember that every crocus bulb planted multiples and blooms each spring for up to 50 years! With just a few years of bulb planting activity, our churchyard will be a spectacular carpet of beautiful purple blossoms every Lenten season.
If you plan to purchase bulbs for this church activity, we hope that you or a family member can plant them. We will work to find additional planting volunteers on our Parish Planting Day in October, but cannot guarantee it. If physically unable, please let us know so we can determine the number of extra volunteers required.
A bag of 100 bulbs costs $14.00. To order bulbs please send a check to St. Mary Anne’s and indicate “Crocus” in the memo line, or visit our website’s Donate page. Deadline for orders is August 31, 2021.
