So what compels one to just ‘lift’ some lovely flowering plants out of a garden bed that does not belong to them?
Our boat launch bed by Kin Park is now missing two Hellebores, winter flowering roses, which bore cream colour flowers.
This is another hit on community garden beds that are maintained and cared for by volunteers with Chemainus Communities in Bloom.
Some of our summer annual flowers ‘disappeared’ from other areas, such as Waterwheel Park, during the summer.
We accept the casualties of nature and ongoing changes with overhauls throughout the seasons, but not deliberate actions to violate any garden beds.
These are tended to for all to see, with annual grant funds for materials budgeted from our North Cowichan Municipality.
We know that our efforts and attractive displays are appreciated by the majority of our citizens and visitors.
Let’s keep that in focus.
