Scene in Edmonds: Planting time downtown
You can hardly miss the reflective safety vests in downtown Edmonds, as grounds crews busily plant street-corner beds with spring flowers.
“We call these Corner Parks,” said Edmonds Parks Department horticulturalist Debra Dill. “With more than 180 planting beds in downtown Edmonds, it’s a very busy time for us, and the Floretum volunteers are a huge help.”
Volunteers from the Edmonds Floretum Garden Club have been giving their time to bring spring color to the downtown area since 1924. “We couldn’t do this without them,” said Dill. “This year alone the Floretum volunteers are saving us about a month’s worth of work.”
