For years, the Weston Road/Easton Road/North Main Street rotary near Exit 42 — the unofficial “Welcome to Westport” landmark for everyone coming off the Merritt Parkway — was maintained, as a public service, by Daybreak Nursery.
But when financial problems caused the nearby business to close, the triangular plot grew grungy.
Now — suddenly — the space looks gorgeous.
I don’t think it was a state Department of Transportation project. But huge props to whoever got it done.
Meanwhile — across town — another “Welcome to Westport” site looks decidedly less welcoming.
Just one more reason to avoid I-95, and take the Merritt.
