Garden Club efforts help to beautify town's village center
The Garden Club of New Milford recently planted new flowers in the six large concrete containers on the Village Green and in the two on Church Street.
The latter is affectionately referred to as "The Taxpayers' Garden" because it is at the entry to the town's tax office.
Six members of the club, led by Ann Stone, chairwoman of the club's civic and town gardens committee, replaced pansies that had been showing their faces since April.
The new assortment of plantings includes wave petunias in various shades of pink and white and ornamental grasses with a red tinge.
In addition, the plantings around the all wars and World War II monuments and the mayor's garden in front of town hall were weeded and plants were added.
New Milford Public Works tends the gardens to ensure they are watered regularly.
