For several days, officials of green spaces are hard at work to give back to the city of Stupidity beautiful summer colors.BY EMILIA SKRZYPCZAKPhoto: Yesterday morning, Francis Guy Bridault Ratte and responsible service parks were present for the laying of the structure.You have probably noticed, those green snowmen brigades curving spine before municipal flowerbeds. A few days before the inauguration of the new roundabout Jean-Stablinski, the pressure mounts. The winter frosts have delayed Reblooming green areas of the city.The few rays of sunshine arrive in time. Four teams of agents are busy cutting, mowing lawns and repot. In a bird flying away in the municipal greenhouses, it pampers the thousands of plants waiting to regain their natural space.Everything must be ready for Friday morning, the day of the inauguration of the stele erected in tribute to the emblematic figure of cycling, Jean Stablinski. Which will at the same time his name at the roundabout located at the corner of Caudry and St. Ladre. The choice of location is not trivial. "This is where spend the riders of the Tour de France on July 7, says Francis Ratte, responsible, with Guy Bridault, green areas of the city. So it was an opportunity to pay tribute to" Stab ". And this roundabout had hitherto not really name ... "The opportunity as any found to restore good looks.4th flower?The airplane Louis Bleriot installed last year, fell a few days ago to make room for a white and yellow iron structure "Le Tour", set on a slope behind a hedge plant. At his feet, a mosaiculture 300 plants will form within a fortnight the word "France". The imposing six-meter structure, completed in three weeks by a team of the municipal workshop, will be filled with potting soil.In which will be added Gnaphalium 1800 (white decorative plants that take until frost). Behind plant hedge, three giants jerseys cyclists.A work it took to accomplish in a short time. "The theme this year was decided in February, we had to redesign the roundabout, make a driveway pavers to install the stele ... But ultimately, this will give a little more character to this place." And there is not it. Candelabra and suspended basins will also give color to the avenue of Victory, and two large floral columns of 2.50 meters will be installed Porte de Paris. But it will have to wait two weeks. "It is preferred to settle at the last minute because of damage and theft, inevitable," said, a little bitter, Francis Ratte, also fears the "rampage" be linked to the influx of tourists.Much effort that may allow the city to add a fourth flower to his record, when passing the regional jury this summer.
