Residents prepare for gardening
Residents build bird feeders
The sun is shining and the temperatures are comfortable, and at the Bismarck Primrose active seniors enjoy the outdoors in many ways.
One popular activity this summer is gardening. To provide for all the members of the garden club, feed troughs from a farm supply store were purchased and filled with soil. Each garden club member was then given a plot in the ground beds.
Vegetables and flowers inhabit the gardening beds. Primrose resident Fred Kaelberer has taken on the watering duties for everyone. Fred goes out to check on the garden every morning, and starts up the hose and waters each area. He has also been very active in helping other residents with their gardening. Some of the gardeners say they enjoy looking at the pretty flowers, while others are looking forward to taking a bite out of a homegrown tomato.
Neighboring the garden area is a bird bath. Many of the residents enjoy bird watching, so the community made homemade bird feeders out of pine cones, peanut butter, and bird seed, and hung the bird feeders next to the bird bath. Visiting birds splash and feed, providing jolly good entertainment for the residents.
An outdoor walking club was recently created. Throughout the winter many of the residents walked the hallways for exercise. Now, they can explore scenic walking paths in any direction they walk, especially along the neighboring golf course or throughout the college campus just to the west of Primrose.
