How are the plants doing? It's been almost two months since the new plants were installed in the flower beds at Beresford Park. Somewhat amazing that the plants haven't been completely trampled by unwitting youngsters on a beeline from the curb into the playground. You may recall the 3 foot high roped fence that previously guarded the dahlias. Having avoided catastrophe so far, each walk into the park is an opportunity for the curious to check and see how the plants are doing. Yesterday the beds got an extra drink of water. In the process, a spot of red on a Lamb's Ear leaf caught my eye. Something about seeing a Lady Bug in a organic garden that says "everything's alright". A good sign indeed.
