Thanks for bountiful, colorful flowers that blossom here


On PN’s morning walk around the neighborhood, mindful that rain is still needed here in these parts of the Midwest,  we noted  many gardeners have been taking care of plants and flowers.

Earlier this month, the City of Naperville reminded residents to water newly planted trees and recently treated ash trees along the parkways.

Going forward, to paraphrase  the words of Herbert Rappaport, “We hope that while so many people are out smelling the flowers, even more residents will continue to take time to plant and water some.”

And from Ben Franklin’s Almanac, “The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most,” wrote John Ruskin.

Thanks to all for keeping Naperville beautiful!

Though this  city has done a pretty good  job of teaching residents to clean up after their dogs, some awareness needs to be taught to litter bugs.   Perhaps it’s time for a public awareness campaign to teach residents to clean up after themselves by putting fast-food wrappers and cups, water bottles and other throw-away items  in the proper place.
