The red dogwood bushes in front of the Austin Public Library became diseased over the winter. LaNette Christianson is digging them up and readying the area to plant Rosy Glow Barberry bushes. "It is going to be really pretty," Christianson said Monday. "The new bushes will have burgundy and pink flowers. I also will be planting yellow spirea." Christianson said many bushes in the area became diseased after the hard winter. She attributed it to salt from the streets and parking lot. This is her second year working for the city Park and Recreation Department and she loves her work. She also tends Worlein Park and the island at the pool.
