Pat Letcher, the resident Green Thumb at our Arcare Helensvale community has been busy potting, planting and pampering the plants in our garden.
Our courtyard garden is beautiful space where many clients go to enjoy the fresh air and floral sights.
Pat is also a regular sight in the garden as she enjoys pruning and ensuring the plants are in tip top shape.
She goes out every day to remove the dead leaves and flowers from the plants.
Pat and Lifestyle Co-ordinator Kate have also been encouraging other clients to join them in their beautiful walk around the gardens at Arcare Helensvale and to nurture their green thumbs.
But everyone is very excited for when the residence Gardening Group starts back up again in November.
For now, we have been making the most of our courtyard garden to enjoy the lovely weather and to sit and relax with a cuppa under the pergola.
