Kudos to the volunteers who maintain this garden especially to Dr. Dave who has devoted hundreds of hours to the task. Please be sure to drop a donation in the box.

Daniel Boone Gardens, a gem in the middle of town, lent itself so well to our writing group focused on nature that day. The entire area that includes neighboring Horn in the West and Watauga Farmers Market (Saturday) makes for a lovely stop. I also...More
