For 75 years, the Milford Garden Club has been leaving its green thumb prints all over the borough.
Most corners in Milford have planters with seasonal flowers planted and tended by the club of 77 members. Flower boxes at the historic sheriff’s office and planters at the courthouse and administration building are also managed by the club.
Planter displays change by season, club President Pam LeRoy said. The group plants in the spring, fall and also puts out Christmas greenery.
The plants require daily watering in the summer but in the fall the watering is cut back to every other day.
Planters were being swapped from summer plants to the autumn selection this week.
Mini pumpkins add color to tightly clenched chrysanthemums and that hearty purple decorative cabbage that were planted. A night time freeze will open those budding mums LeRoy said.
With mims in the planters, it is a sure sign of fall.
Well done, Milford Garden Club. These are the touches that make a town look loved.
