About 242 days ago, I posted these garden obelisks when I’d completed building them. Here they are in their home, which is the DeKalb County (Illinois) Rehab and Nursing Center’s Alzheimer’s garden, where I am the volunteer gardener. The purple obelisk is surrounded by purple and white Angelonia, and the orange one is surrounded by double zahara zinnia. The residents and families really like the color matches.

You have done a lovely job incorporating the obelisks into a peaceful and beautiful setting.
