Town & Country gets “Flower Power”

Members of Town and Country Garden Club availed themselves of the thaw and sunny weather on Saturday, January 16, 2010, to plant 200 spring bulbs acquired through the “Flower Power” program sponsored by the organization Keep Durham Beautiful.

Via the Internet, Keep Durham Beautiful offered the chance to register to win packets of 50 bulbs (tulips, daffodils, crocus, grape hyacinths, Dutch iris, and alpine rosy bells). Four Town and Country members’ entries were successful.

Greatly aided by volunteer-husband Jim Agnew’s power-digger, Town & Country members Carol G., Chasie H., Nita B., and Martha C. are shown above planting their Flower Power allotment. The bulbs are planted on the lower island of the Windsor Way median, complementing the shrub plantings placed there by Town and Country’s 2009 Neighborhood Beautification project.
