What's Blooming Today, August 1-19?
Keeping Oakmont looking pretty and pink all summer long.
The Garden Club members have worked hard this summer to keep Oakmont looking great. The Oakmont in Bloom committee gathered on May 18 to plant 800 bubblegum petunias in the tree wells and urns along the Boulevard. This is always a challenge as securing the petunias, coordinating their arrival and getting them planted takes a lot of coordination and effort. Sherry Ehrlich beautified the bus stop hay baskets and planters located across from the Deli. With the help of her husband she also made sure all the beautiful hanging baskets were up and well cared for all summer. The Civic Planting committee planted flowers at the entrance to Oakmont by the high school. The Adopt a Block committee kept the beds looking good by pulling the weeds before and after the planting of the petunias. Kudos to all who have helped keep Oakmont in Bloom. It’s been amazing to watch all the flowers grow.
