We would like to compliment the City of Carmel and the Carmel Street Dept. on the beautiful hanging baskets that decorate our city. Carmel has over 700 hanging baskets throughout the city, each of which must be cared for and watered daily. It is such a joy to drive through town and see all the baskets overflowing with colorful flowers.
This year the conditions have been kind to the plants, but last year, despite the drought and high temperatures, the baskets were also beautiful: a remarkable feat. In many cities we have visited, flowers provide a cheerful welcome to travelers and tourists and give a colorful splash of life to otherwise harsh streetscapes. The planters along Michigan Avenue in Chicago are one spectacular example which even change with the seasons. While Carmel’s flowers may embellish on a smaller scale they, nonetheless, reflect well upon our city. Thank you!
