Blue Star Memorial Gets Facelift

Ceres Garden Club members were out swinging picks and shovels to beautify the Blue Star Memorial Marker, located at 2701 Fourth Street, Ceres.  The beautification project included planting of red, white and blue in a wave pattern under the marker using blue Russian sage, white geranium, and red geranium.

Breaking the hardened soil and amending with compost to ensure long bloom, members broke only 1 pick but quickly found a replacement to finish the project.  Sprinklers had to be adjusted, and nearly 160 feet of hose was strung together to give the new plants a cooling down in the hot temperatures.
