Flower Urns 2013
Shade Urn at Cuffs
Many things … but especially the flowers that bloom in the business district from spring through fall.  Residents and visitors marvel at the display seen in the parks, bump-out gardens in the sidewalks, and the urns at business store fronts. 
The planting and gardening is done by 20 volunteers who contributed about 850 hours last summer.  Your Home Town funds the plants that flourish in 52 urns, the Dogwood Valley Garden Club contributes to the cost of the hanging baskets and the Village provides all of the other plant materials. 
New last summer was a perennial garden that was planted along the fence at the front of the police station.
Ongoing, is the work to beautify the riverbank in Riverside Park with “naturalized gardens.”
This year work will begin with clean-up of the gardens day on April 23.  Planting will take place May 15 and 16 in preparation for Blossom Time.  After planting there will be a link from the YHT website that will give plant identification.
Gardeners Janine Bauman and Anne deConingh are the co-chairs who join me in planning and coordinating the entire program and working in the gardens all summer.  If you are inspired to join the volunteer effort, please contact
