Today’s photograph was taken of the Heidi Allen garden located at the intersection of Route 104 and 104b next to the convenience store where Heidi was kidnapped from. May 22nd, I shared the transformation of overgrown and dying plants to a garden full of life and beauty ~ thanks to many hands, hearts and donations. It was a wonderful afternoon and time of fellowship.
Once the garden’s facelift was complete, my parents placed solar lights at each of the five points. I had some request a picture at night to show the garden aglow. I haven’t forgotten this request and have tried a few different times. After the store closes it is too dark to still have the garden illuminated so I tried at dusk ~ this came out beautifully. (I think) You can still see the garden yet it is dark enough outside for the solar lights to work. Whether it’s day or night…the garden is a constant reminder and encouragement to my family, me and the community.
Heidi is and will never be forgotten! Thank you New Haven!
