Many of you might not be aware that the Taunton Press, and thus Fine Gardening, is based in Newtown, Connecticut. Taunton has made this wonderful town its home for over 30 years. We're all a bit fragile at the moment. Luckily, no one in the company was directly affected family-wise by last week's horrible tragedy, but plenty have friends who lost loved ones. Today I'm featuring a few photos from the park in the middle of Newtown called The Pleasance. It's maintained by our local newspaper, the Newtown Bee, and no one who drives through town can miss this peaceful place. I hope even just a few town residents find some comfort here in the months and years to come. Give your loved ones extra-big hugs, and stay safe.
