Red canna flowers sway in the breeze along Highway 28, greeting drivers coming into town at the roundabout. Standing nearly as tall as a person, the cannas greet visitors and locals alike and wave a gentle goodbye as they leave.
The flowers are part of a city-wide project known as the Quincy Beautification Project. Flowers line the roadway from the roundabout to Tenth, between Second and Third, and then start again around Sixth. Four more areas line the south-bound highway toward George.
