The Ronald McDonald House expanded beyond its original building in Syracuse NY. The new building has 25 bedrooms, a kitchen and a wonderful children’s playroom and outdoor garden. A J Miller Landscape Architecture provided our services pro-bono; additionally, we asked our contacts if they could donate plants or furniture for the project. "Willie Wildlife Sculptures" from Australia donated a bronze bird bath with dancing frogs for the garden. We used an artificial lawn for the play area to reduce maintenance, noise, water use and to provide a dry play area all summer. The planting choices for this garden consisted of 'child-like' plants, exuberant, playful, colorful and whimsy. The signature plant used throughout the garden was Sunflowers. Sunflowers are known for being 'happy' flowers, with their symbolism of bringing joy, long life and good luck to the children and their families using this facility.
