Mary Knight finds Oscar-winning weeders at work in our town
Substitute garden volunteer discovers downtown flowers need little maintenance on her day in the sun, with almost too little to do - but geraniums at the fountain did need deadheading.
By Mary Knight
Because Bill and Beth Coleman and Jeanne Marshburn were unable to work on Wednesday, the 23rd, their usual weeding day, I went in to the Square help to help out.
I found 21 weeds (total) in the 12 day lily beds around the Square. The stone areas around the trees in the four corners were weedless and debris-less.
The stone area around the Annex monument was weed and debris-less
I found more work to do at the Fountain - but that was mainly deadheading the geraniums from the heavy rains on Tuesday.
At the circle, next to the Court House, I found eight weeds, all very small. The plants were well trimmed and cut back neatly.
Each bed was neatly mulched and had no cigarette butts visible.
Do Bill and Beth and Jeanne qualify as Oscar-winning weeders or not?
Maybe someone should go up to the Trabue House and see if Garden Clubbers Donna Jones, Glenda Brouckaert, Kathy Hunt, Betty Knifley, Maury Lewis, and Lila Loy are doing as good a job every Tuesday. Something tells me that they are!!!
Thanks, Garden Club.
