Flowers in downtown Cheney bring some color to the streets

Cheney's downtown is in bloom. The kiosks on Main Street welcome travelers with a panoply of flowers in the hanging baskets and barrel planters that surround sturdy iron benches inviting sojourners and residents alike to stop and sit a spell.

To add to the welcoming sentiments, 10 blocks of striking new welcome banners are displayed from poles leaving no doubt that Cheney is a hospitable town and a good place to stop.

The hanging baskets and kiosk planters are especially beautiful this summer. City Administrator Arlene Fisher relates that they are a special “street type” basket that is grown and sold by a greenhouse in Post Falls, Idaho. The ground planters are planted with flowers from our own Chet's Flowers here in Cheney.

Thanks for dressing up our main street goes to Mayor Trulove, Cheney City Council, Arlene Fisher and the talented workers who do the job.

We are blessed to live in Cheney, Spokane County, Washington, USA.

Merle and Joanne Craner
