Many folks have noticed the five pots of flowers positioned around the Close. These are the gifts of several students who have offered their pocket change, time, and talents to make the Close more enjoyable, and you too can share your gifts! There are several empty pots around the Close and in the basements beneath the Tower and Edson. It's mum season, and surprisingly Ha Ha Fresh's mums are priced relatively reasonably. In a few months pansies will be all the rage (one of the only naturally blue flowers!) and they should last well into the winter.While the long-term plan calls for new landscaping of the Close, student and resident stewardship - by the community for the good of the community - begins today.
