    Moody’s employees returned to Brooklyn Botanic Garden on May 16 and spent a beautiful spring afternoon deadheading, weeding, and edging lilacs in the Louisa Clark Spencer Lilac Collection with BBG Gardener Barry Rogers. Moody’s volunteers helped to cut spent lilac flower heads from stems in the process known as deadheading, which will help to encourage the production of new flower and leaf buds next spring. Thank you, Moody’s, for your time and hard work!
