Blooms abound

WL-Garden

This week’s sunny weather and warmer temperatures have fared well for the West Liberty Community Garden, located at the north end of the village along U.S. Route 68 at Township Road 189, which is pictured Thursday. Members of the West Liberty Garden Club tend to the garden, which currently features many flowers in bloom, such as coneflowers, black-eyed Susans, daisies, daylilies, phlox and others. The late Dr. H.L. Mikesell, a U.S. Army physician, helped to attain the cannons that are located in the space, which also serves as a memorial to local veterans. (EXAMINER PHOTO | MANDY LOEHR)
