Thanks to a grant from the Garden Club of Concord, the window boxes at the North Bridge Visitor Center are providing a cheery welcome to visitors. For several years the Garden Club of Concord has given a grant to the Friends of Minute Man to keep the window boxes and the planters full of colorful flowers all season long.
Even though the North Bridge Visitor Center remains closed, we hope you enjoy these splashes of color as you visit the grounds. Pack a lunch and sit in the shady back yard patio where picnic tables are available and afford a beautiful view of the Concord River.
In the image above, preservation intern Lucy Bergeron is seen watering the window boxes this spring. Fall will bring a seasonal change of flowers, followed by evergreens in the winter.
