Astorian LaRee Johnson wants everyone “to take notice of the beautiful floral hillside garden up 11th Street by the Astoria Senior Center. There are a growing variety of flowers from tall stately sunflowers, to dahlias, poppies, nasturtiums, glads and sweet peas, plus many more to beautify our walk up the hill.” The garden is shown.
“This display of natural beauty is compliments of Mr. Larry Miller,” she explained. He is pictured, courtesy of astoriaseniorcenter.org. “You’ll see him working almost daily planting, or watering or weeding. Stop by and thank him for this gift to the community. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone took such pride, and planted something of beauty” for all to enjoy?
“Another reason Astoria is a real community,” she added, “people like Mr. Larry.”
