Wildflowers in New Jersey show bipartisan agreement

Public or private, Republican or Democrat, everyone who drives by the median in Cherry Hill, New Jersey's Route 70 loves the wild flowers that now bloom there, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Pink, white, maroon, orange and yellow cosmos grace the median that is usually covered with three-foot high weeds, the news source reports. The flowers planted were a $8,000-$10,000 endeavor made possible by public and private donations. The flowers will bloom annually between Cherry Hill's borders with Pennsauken and Evesham.

"It's a gateway to the Garden State, and the weeds were three feet high," State Senator James Beach told the news source. "It certainly did not look as welcoming as the wildflowers."

To make the project happen, the Republican administration in Trenton worked together with the Democratic administration in Cherry Hill to beautify the state.

Many towns may choose to liven up public spaces with flowers, or to have floral arrangements at the entrances to public buildings. Chrysanthemums are a good choice for fall flowers that work both in and out of doors. Aster bouquets or an arrangement with roses is also a great way to say "welcome."
