Speaking of beautifying the landscape, efforts to battle the chronic algae problem on Carroll Creek are picking up steam. Following a successful test of 30 plants last summer, the non-profit organization Color On The Creek plans to lower the water level by two feet for several days and install specially-fabricated plant stands, placing 780 perennial lily, lotus and bog plants in the waterway between Market and Carroll streets on Saturday April 13. Tropical lilies will be potted and placed on May 18 in conjunction with the Through the Garden Gates tour of Frederick.
