Somebody who doesn't appear to be a member of the Wellesley Gardeners' Guild is going around watering the public flower boxes around the post offices in Wellesley Square and Wellesley Hills before guild members can - and is killing the plants through overwatering. Deb Brown reports.
I’ve been scheduled for duty for the past week, and when I showed up only to find that someone had gotten there before me, soaking the drought-resistant plants within an inch of their lives, it put my anxiety level through the roof, let me tell you. Some of plants had actually given up, drowned - blub, blub, blub - by too much of a good thing.
I did what any panicked garden club member would do. I emailed that most august of garden club figures, the Chair of Civic Improvements of the Post Offices.
