Locals come together for flower planting
Members of several community organisations in Coupar Angus turned out on Saturday to help with the planting of 10,000 crocus bulbs at the Common.
The flowers will add to the spring display named locally as Harlow’s Flowers in memory of Harlow Edwards, who was killed, aged two, just over a year ago.
Harlow’s mum and dad, Sara and Steve, joined the planters and Sara said they were comforted by the continuing support of the community.
The planting was arranged by Pride of Place and purple bulbs – Tommasinianus – were from Rotary International as part of its Purple4Polio campaign.
On Friday Ken Mackeson, Bill Ronald and Bruce Malloch got the loan of a turf cutter from Perth and Kinross Council to cut the turf near the Princeland Road side of the Common. This made for an easier and more orderly planting.
A year ago 10,000 bulbs were planted at the top of the Common and when they bloomed were known as Harlow’s Flowers.
Big day For Harlow’s mum and dad Steve and Sara
