Be Counted, Gaithersburg!
 
As of July 27, our census self-response rate is 66.6% compared to a 73.2% final self-response rate in 2010. If 43 households per day in each of the census tracts in Gaithersburg fill out the census between now and July 31, we'll match what we did in 2010 (and you'll avoid having a census taker knock on your door to have you fill it out in person). The last day to be counted is October 31. Thank you to the 17,000 households that have already responded! Be counted now and fill out the census online. It's important, it's easy and it's safe.

Allium, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland
 
I posted this photograph in a number of Facebook groups this morning. Allium plants are good selections for home gardens in Kentlands, our home community within the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland.

They make excellent cut flowers for fresh or dried bouquets. Even crowded gardens can accommodate a few alliums because they don't take up much space. What's more, alliums are relatively resistant to deer, voles, chipmunks, and rabbits
