The air had a tropical feel this morning, with a temperature in the 80’s even before we got to work on the CCC Field brick walk. Nevertheless, we finished clearing the walk to the fountain as well as most of the mulched beds under the trees. There are still a few weeds to be cleaned up, including in two small mulch beds around large trees and behind the benches. Before quitting for the day we stopped at the Rain Garden and pulled Lady’s Thumb knotweed and trimmed back some of the Bee Balm which has collapsed in the recent rains. Eric and I worked earlier in the week to weed the Native Plant Garden. Next week we’ll need to dive into the Pool Gardens and check the Butterfly Garden, CCC Museum and Anniversary Garden.
Thoughts on the park, its residents and how to preserve its natural beauty.
