Spring has sprung in Westport. Alert “06880” reader Molly Alger captured these scenes on her Whitney/Salem/Colony/Post Road walk.

After your recent post about the Westport Community Gardens, I signed right up.
The area assigned to me had some nice raised beds and soil. I spent last weekend cleaning the weeds and prepping the beds. Unfortunately the previous owner had a change of heart and removed everything, leaving a swamp when I showed back up.
Lou Weinberg, who runs the garden, offered to help me build new beds. I picked up lumber at Torno, and this morning we got to work.
A senior couple, Paddy and Pat Duecy, came by. They offered amazing gardening advice, and chatted with my 9-year old-daughter. Reese is a 3rd grader at Coleytown Elementary School.
My kids have planned out our crops. Now we’re off to Gilbertie’s for some more soil and plants. What a treasure the garden is — and what a sense of community it brings!
