This is a new home for CT DIGS — a transplanting that’s in keeping with Connecticut’s state motto — “Qui transtulit sustinet.”
I’ve often thought that the real spirit of that motto isn’t the exact translation — “He who is transplanted still sustains” — but that “He [or she] who is transplanted continues to thrive.”
Look for my earlier posts (I started CT DIGS in April 2010) at www.courant.com/ctdigsarchives.
And in case you’re wondering, the gardener holding the shovel in that file photo by Mark Mirko of The Hartford Courant is none other than renowned Connecticut garden writer Tovah Martin.
