A garden can have special meaning for each of us. Maybe you like to get down and dirty, nurturing and watching your garden unfold into something beautiful, while enjoying your link with nature. Perhaps, you are an observer and just want to drink in the perky "I'm glad winter's over" colors of spring, hot colors of summer and rich, warm colors of fall. A garden can also be a place to entertain friends and family, a place to relax alone and meditate after a long stressful day at work, or a garden can mean something else!
Gardens and parks have become a place to pay homage to the families and victims of 9-11, and have also become a gathering place of not only families and friends, but also strangers, side-by-side, unified, gaining a sense of strength to help one another, just to get thru it all.
