Arlington National Cemetery has received a lot of bad publicity in the past year or two. (See my earlier articles at http://goo.gl/1zY67.) However, nearly 400 adults, accompanied by 48 of their children, took a day off on Monday from landscaping companies in 29 states to help beautify the grounds at the famous cemetery. Adults pruned and braced trees, aerated soil and put down lime, while the children planted perennials. A local horticulturalist also was on hand to teach the children about the caterpillars and other insects they found.
