And the beat goes on....

I can't tell you how inspired NB and I have been lately to get back into the groove with our independent Salem beautification team, Well-fed Guerrillas.

We found a neat-o new spot. We have a new member, welcome Lilli Ocelot! and this just in: On a wild Wednesday coffee run, I discovered that the people who maintain the land lots at our first Guerrilla Gardening event, May 1 at Starbucks - Lakeside, had recently brought mulch to cover the areas. They mulched around all of our lovely flowers.

This must have been VERY time consuming for the individual, but OMG! It looks great! Out of respect for this unnamed person, we must...must continue in the fight!

Much love,Hannibal and Nora Belle Please welcome Lilli Ocelot! She is awesome. Dinner ideas? Plans? Looking for something around late June... Oh, and Nora Belle says it must happen at someone else's house this time. She is busy getting ready for the birthday party of the year.

well done WFGs!

Well done, WFG's. The ground covering was a success and today I received a personal thank you from the store manager. Thank you for your time and efforts! It was great working with you all. Over 50 plants were planted, new mulch was laid and a whole lotta fun was had.

Pictured: Ar-er, Ninnan, Bubba, Nora Belle, Lady Lantana, POD, Hannibal, and always clicking but never pictured -Flicker Clicker! also wic: an unnamed gentleman who stopped by to lend a hand!

Feel free to contact us anytime if you would like to start another action or host a potluck dinner at your house. Best wishes to you all. Thanks to those who donated and those who dug. You are awesome!
