Franklin Beautification

I had always wondered how they kept the flowers in these boxes from drying out. Now I know: there is a built-in drip irrigation system. Last weekend I attended Franklin's Beautification Day, where I helped the garden club and other volunteers put flowers into these and other planters in our downtown.

I have to say, I feel a little lost when it comes to standard non-native garden plants, but the garden club members were a lovely bunch. They really bring a needed touch of beauty to our town center, and I didn't get any funny looks from them when I talked about native plants. I had such a good time working with them that I'll be going back for more! Garden club, here I come.
