Patty Bonicatto, of Pequot Lakes, has a flower garden to rival the pictures in magazines. Surrounding her house are bursts of color texture from a variety of plants.
For Patty, creating her garden meant creating a place to pray.
“This is sort of my prayer garden,” she said. “I needed a place to sit and relax and pray.”
Patty began gardening in 1993, but didn’t really take to it until she moved to the area in 1999 and began a transformation of her yard.
“I didn’t have any sun, it was all shade,” Patty said.
