Camden’s flowers ready for summer

CAMDEN — It’s all in place. The hanging baskets of geraniums on the lampposts, the flower boxes on the bridge and at the arch, the traffic islands by the library, and the garden by the Chamber of Commerce at the Camden landing. Every year members of the Camden Garden Club dig in to make the summer as beautiful as always.
