Along our normal running route is a cute little garden. The garden is special for a couple reasons.
1. It’s not really a garden. It’s actually a parking area, but the owner doesn’t appear to have a vehicle (just a bicycle). In their parking area, they made a little garden because the cement pad is not as cute as plants.
2. The owner of the garden changes out the plants every month. This enables them to showcase what is blooming during that season.
3. It’s down a dead end alley. We run down it because at the dead end is a way to cut through to park. The alley is mostly used by pedestrians transiting to the park, making the garden even more appreciated.
In March, I decided to start documenting the garden with a photo each month. At this point, I have four months of pictures. Two things are in each picture, the bicycle and the bark pieces. The bike is so Japanese and the bark makes it all seem more garden-like. Also, with all our runs, we’ve never seen the gardener!
March 2018 – the highlight for me was of course the daffodils.
April 2018 – the azaleas are so beautiful! Also, notice how big the hosta has become.
May 2018 – Roses and a huge hosta. Different than the one in the other pictures.
June 2018 – many tropical flowers. I recognized jasmine and bougainvillea.
I’ll continue to take a photo each month and share again next quarter. I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as we enjoy passing the garden everyday. You just never know where you will find beauty. It’s the wabisabi way!
