Margaret, Mick, Paddy and me went for
a walk around the pond this morning.

A lovely late summers day under the
spell of a Canadian air mass.

The Red Dogwoods planted in the dry
shady area at the foot of Lenox, south
side, appear to be surviving.

They would be better sited on the
shore of the footpath where they
would help stabilize bank erosion.

The vines are still uncut, strangling
the trees along the wooded path from
Lenox to Holmes Dale.

Willow plantings should be made to
beutify the pond park and help stem
shore/bank erosion/collapse.

A young willow on the Milner Ave
footpath is being strangled by vines.

Flowers have been ripped off from
the flower pot.

Flowers planted earlier in the year
by the children's play area are
dying of thirst in the dry raised
compost beds.

The two Hemlocks along Rafts way
are suffering from lack of cutting
the brush which is choking them.

Nevertheless, the pond park looks
good along Berkshire, and is
pleasant place for a stroll or jog.

Many neighbors were out and about.
