Today was one of those days that made me feel so good about our neighborhood and what we as neighbors can do together. Several of us spent the morning planting almost 50 new shrubs and other perennials on the Everett St slope between Lincoln and Adamson Streets. Sunday's rain will be a welcome drink for these new additions.
As always, Mahoney's Garden Center on Western Ave was a great help, providing plants at a significant discount, consulting on plant selection, and delivery to the site. Mahoney's has a lot of great fall arrivals in stock and is a great source for supplies when you are decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Please help support this great locally owned business.
The transformation at this site in the last year has been amazing. Meeting so many neighbors and working together to beautify our neighborhood has been so rewarding. Today a new friend brought strawberries transplanted from her garden and hand-gathered flower seeds.
We dug more holes today than we had plants, so will be back at it next Sunday (Oct 4) from 9-12 to put shrubs in these holes and spread the wildflower seeds that we expect will arrive this week. It would be great to have you join us.
Later this fall we will plant daffodils. Stay tuned for details.
