Marie's Garden

A garden has been named for Marie Eshleman, who for the past eight years has voluntarily added a touch of beauty to the northwest corner of East Baltimore Street at I-81. The work became more than she could handle and a group has taken over the initial heavy spring work, though Eshleman will continue to help maintain the parcel. The sign reads ‘Marie’s Garden, Tended by Greencastle-Antrim Democratic Club and Friends.’ The plot is full of daylilies, peonies, Rose of Sharon, irises, geraniums and poppies provide blooms all season. Philip’s Seed and Nursery donated annuals this year. Meeting last Tuesday, prior to Earth Day on April 22, to work the soil were, from left, kneeling: Ruth Jordan and Shari Morgan. Standing: Anne Larew, Karin Johnson, Michele Emmett and Dianne Smith.
