Hats off to Dixon in Bloom for a great job on the petunia baskets this year. They are beautiful, the colors vibrant, and I know that the daily watering by the city is a big factor in keeping them looking beautiful. 

A lot of hard work and effort go into getting the baskets ready for hanging. The ladies deserve a big hand for beautifying Dixon.

Let's show our appreciation by making a donation to the Dixon in Bloom project, in care of Mrs. Robin Canode.
