I had the distinct honor of giving a presentation at the season-end celebration of the Dryden Beautification Brigade. These volunteers do a great job planting and maintaining planters and public gardens around the village.
After viewing a slideshow of them in action, I told them that if any local government had to pay full retail for plantings like these, they’d never happen. It’s great to see the pride this group has for their community and the energy they put into their beautification efforts.
I’m not much of a public speaker. So I overwhelmed them with slides chronicling the year in my garden. Several of the brigaders asked if I’d put the presentation on line so they could go back and capture the names of plants they want to try but didn’t have a chance to jot down. So here it is, all 31 MB. So be patient. It’s a long download.
