Community beautification

My garden club does a terrific job beautifying our small community.  We have 46 active members and take care of many of the “commons” and other areas in our small New England town.   We also do some work at the Virginia Thurston Healing Garden in nearby Harvard, MA.  http://www.healinggarden.net.

The last couple of weeks we’ve been out cleaning up the gardens for the winter and putting up some seasonal decor as well.

Here we are at the Hollis St triangle on Main St.
