Nancy Forrester and the Secret Garden

On Saturday, March 31, 2012, lovers and supporters of Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden gathered to celebrate the forty-two years she maintained the garden and spiritedly called forth an amazing future for this Key West treasure.

According to Mandy Miles, writer for Key West newspaper, The Citizen:

She retains ownership of the attached property at 518 Elizabeth St. that abuts the garden acreage, and has moved the parrots and orchids there, where she will continue to invite visitors to explore the educational displays she will install on that property.

"I've always had the two entrances, but since I'm no longer able to use Free School Lane, I'll be using 518 Elizabeth," she said. "And since I no longer have a rainforest garden, I'll be offering more educational displays about the orchids and parrots."

She optimistically called the change a "metamorphosis" and a "resurgence of creative energy."

For those who mourn the change, trust Nancy's optimism, and continue supporting  its new identity.

All the best to you Nancy, and the sacred garden. Your love's labour's not lost.
