A few weeks ago I was perusing the list of parks on our city’s website. One that caught my eye was the Community Garden.
We have a Community Garden? Cool! I wonder where it is?
Right next to the Parks & Rec building, you say? Why, that’s just across the street.
I had noticed the pretty landscaping before, but I didn’t realize it was a Community Garden.
Let’s go explore, shall we?
Also, the butterflies are in residence.
They can read, apparently, because one was fluttering on a bloom close to the sign that said Butterfly Garden. Can you see it in the smaller picture? Right in the middle. Now, up a little bit. There!
The girls and I were entranced with the whimsical wind chimes hanging from the pagoda. We thought it might be fun to make something similar.
I don’t know that we ever will, but it was a fun thought.
I don’t know if “Community Garden” means that members of the community are free to harvest the berries, but I confess to helping myself to one or two. I love berries.
Perhaps the raspberries are Natives? Or maybe the sign referred to other plants? I’m not sure.
On this side we have Wild Flowers. And what’s that I spy back behind the fence, near the building?
Could it possibly be a Little Free Library?
Yes, indeed it is! Just the very thing to make this little garden perfect in every way.
