Last August I blogged about Mari Sorgatz, one of the workers for the City of Northfield’s Streets, Parks & Facilities Division who has downtown flower watering duties in the summer. The Northfield Garden Club is responsible for planting the flowers and vines in the spring but the city is responsible to keep them alive, watering them nearly every morning.
Yesterday morning at 6 am, I found Mari watering the new hanging flowers on the pedestrian bridge which got the Northfield in Bloom treatment back in May.
She told me that her mom printed out last year’s photo so naturally, I had to take another. (Note to Mari’s mom: contact me if you want the original, as it’s much better for making a print.)
And thanks to all the city workers and volunteers who help make downtown spiffy.
