This Concord couple walked more than 100 miles across England

It’s not uncommon to see Jim Kinhan and Ginny Mierins strolling around the streets of Concord.

Flowers, flowers and more flowers

Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses – it is a garden tour after all

There’s nothing better than a lavish garden to show that spring is almost over and summer is just around the corner. It feels like yesterday we would have done just about anything for spring to arrive. Oh, how the times have changed.
