Flower Power

By | Jul 10, 2009

The day before the 3100 mile race started, Diganta, one of the runners, was inspired to plant flowers in various locations around the course. Although some of the flowers did not survive it inspired some of the helpers to start planting more flowers in locations suitable to sustain their growth.

Niriha and Arpita, who is visiting from Scotland, spent much time and money purchasing and planting flowering plants of many varieties. I and a few others volunteered to water them daily as they need to survive the summer heat, especially when first put in the ground. Luckily it has not been extremely hot of late, but our flowering friends still need their  daily dose of H2O to keep all the runners and spectators feeling colorful and happy.
