Veterans Wall of Honor
This just in from Penny Frahm.
Busy day at the Veteran's Wall. Workers, Tony LaCausi, Deidre Cheney and Penny Frahm cleaned out the debris in the boxwoods and Tony trimmed them. Flower beds were cleaned out and some soil added. The summer plants were put in: durango marigolds (yellow) that will get pretty big and do well there; dwarf blue ageratum for the front border; and some red hot sally salvia for an extra splash of color. Mulched to retain moisture. The committee is hoping the compact nadinas come back. Tony had to stake out the red buds trees that actually got bent over in the flood! Still some more work to do, especially if the holly trees by the fountain to do pull through. Check out the slideshow of the before and after photos.
