Pansies are a Plus

The calendar is telling me that spring is here, but lately, it's been an up and down see-saw of weather offerings. It was so nice to finally have a pleasant day, so Monday I took a stroll through Veteran's Park on my lunch break. As I looked for a bench to relax on, I noticed a few ladies dangerously perched on the median in the middle of Atlantic Street. Yikes, what are they thinking? Well, it seems that every year, without much fanfare, the "Pansy Planting Crew" appears. The are called the Downtown Streetscape Volunteers, and they are quite busy this time of year. This season, they filled the Atlantic Street planters with beautiful yellow pansies, as well as the main library and many other downtown planters with the same. Seeing the new growth reminded me that summer is not too far away. (What a great feeling!) Pictured left: Lenore DiPalma and Betty Roberts
So, as you happen to walk along downtown, take a look and notice the kind work these volunteers have accomplished. Not only do they dig in the dirt, but they dangerously perch along a busy roadway to ensure that beauty of a pansy is shared with Stamford Downtown.
