The Flower Posse has been hard at work making holiday decoration for town. The two main features are snowmen and Christmas trees.
The farm wagon in front of the Police Station has a 'crowd' of snowmen made out of tires and cutout wooden patterns. The Christmas Trees were made out of garland and tomato rings.
Members donated other items and came up with some really creative ideas.
The Flower pots in front of the City Office and Library got a touch of 'Holiday Spirit'.
The park benches even got a little holiday cheer.
This fall the Flower Posse created a Sass Memorial Iris Garden made up of nearly 75 varieties of award winning Sass Irises. Its located in front of the Police Station. Part of the garden includes 30 some individual stepping stones. Members got together for a "concrete pouring party". Members acquired a concrete mixer, 10 sacks of 'ready mix', and the Zaruba's back yard. We used the 'bucket rings' that we used for the iris propagation beds for forms. The ladies came prepared with all sorts of ideas and materials to decorate them. Many of us came away with 'dirty hands'.
So, next year when these irises start to bloom, come visit the new garden and use these stepping stones to get really close to enjoy the beauty and fragrance of these beautiful flowers. Remember, they are the official flowers of Bennington.
