Beautification Day - early results

Did you notice that Franklin got  its beautification treatment on Saturday? There are flowers in the flower pots on the triangle, the boxes along the bridge railing and in the planters on the island at Emmons and Main St.

Courtesy of the Franklin Downtown Partnership, local business sponsors and the help of many volunteers!

The flowers are a mix of red, white and blue with a yellow for accent.

The blue are rather quiet and small but should fill in nicely as the season progresses

There was careful choice in the selection, all for hardiness and then considerations for shape and color

Around the 4th of July, these flower beds should look less like they were newly planted and more like they are brimming with growth!

As you pass by, consider thanking the Downtown Partnership, the business sponsors and all the volunteer time to help make Franklin as colorful and welcoming as it is!
