Okay, I'll admit it.
I LOVE Long Island.
It is one beautiful place to live.
The farms are plentiful, the beaches beautiful and we have so many quaint towns filled with charming shops.
Every where I go different things catch my eye. And this week was no different.
Right in the middle of a historic town, not far from my town, a community garden has sprung up.
River and Roots Community garden.
This is the garden's first year and it looks great!
While I stopped to capture these photos, I met a retired police officer and his young daughter checking on their tomatoes. It is the first time they have ever had a garden! Love that!
Now it is a lovely garden that has a picnic area, compost pile, tool shed and lots of veggies and flowers!
