To the editor:

Some of the Friday Tidy gals were a bit surprised to read a comment in the Review thanking Debbi Lester for planting the daffodils at Waypoint. In fact, the Friday Tidy volunteers, who have taken care of the library gardens for 17 years now, helped me plant 1,000 daffodils last fall.

The beautiful bulbs were donated by Dick and Kaye Krutch, whose family has been donating daffodils to plant in public places for many years (all the ones along Bainbridge roadsides, for instance).

The Friday Tidies also helped me plant nearly 6,000 plants at Waypoint, along with the skillful and cheerful Bloedel crew. I myself designed the Waypoint gardens, chose and placed the plants, and had amazing help getting everything into the ground (we added about 400 new plants this spring). A really lovely team effort!

We continue to keep the Waypoint looking good by gardening there on the fourth Friday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. If anybody wants to join us, they are very, very welcome!
