Ashcroft’s Communities in Bloom committee is justifiably proud of our community: The pride the residents take in their properties, the great work done by the village crew to keep our parks and streets looking so good, and the wonderful additions that volunteers have made in several areas.

We also wish to acknowledge the businesses, whose job is not always easy. They offer a variety of services, and work so hard to bring them to us. Each year, Communities in Bloom honours one of our local businesses by awarding it the Best Bloomin’ Business Award.

The award takes into consideration curb appeal, use of colour, and pride shown in the presentation of their business; and this year we are very pleased to honor CFDC Sun Country. The bright and vibrant planters outside the office on Railway Avenue are paired with tinkling wind-chimes that hang from the roof, offering the passersby both a visual and auditory delight.

This year, the visual appeal was greatly increased by the addition of four lovely desert planters. The desert planters are a wonderful idea for our hot, dry climate (maybe not so much this year!), as they have a reservoir for water in the bottom and require filling perhaps only once per week. This saves both water and time, and also creates more prolific flowers, as the plants draw up water from the bottom. These planters continued the lovely show of colour along the side of the CFDC building this year.

We congratulate CFDC Sun Country: A great community, and Communities in Bloom supporter.
