With all the rain we’ve been having, the Spring plants are going gangbusters. Odds are you’ve seen (and smelled!) some lovely lilac in bloom in our parks over the last week or so.

The Ravenswood Manor Park steward and volunteers got out and did some planting last Friday morning, June 7. The weekend prior saw a flurry of planting in Sunken Garden and Buffalo Parks, as our stewards and neighbor volunteers start feeling that old Spring planting fever.

Thanks to Sunken Garden Park Steward Luke Ross and neighbor volunteers Julia Adams, and Patrick Monaghan for planting coneflower ‘milkshake,’ two kinds of salvia, sage ‘caradonna,’ weigela, and sunflower heliopsis. Plants were donated by Julia Adams and SummerSweet Garden Design. Patrick and the team reported that it was a fun couple of hours.

Thanks goes out as well to Buffalo Park Steward Suzanne Davenport for leading a crew in cleaning up Buffalo’s corner garden beds, planting new natives, and mulching around all the trees. Neighbor volunteers pitching in included: Alan Mueller, Rich Doyle and his children, Eric and Kira, Karen Eisenstat, and Susan and John O’Connell.
