Watering up

Decades ago Quincy boasted that it was the petunia capital of California. Up and down Main Street all the businesses had sidewalk planters filled with petunias, the county fairgrounds was awash with them, and nearly every home had some in their flower beds. This year the downtown merchants have revived the tradition with baskets hanging from all the downtown lampposts.
I caught a prominent local family taking their turn with the watering cart early this morning.
