Urban Oasis

I seek beauty in my everyday surroundings, especially objects folks have created or curated  for others to share. Their unselfish efforts make me smile and calm my spirit. Given the short supply of laughter and peace in this world I consider these gifts beyond measure.

Tonight I will focus on mini-gardens I found in my neighborhoods (both work and home). Some are masterful efforts with many plants, others are clever uses of color to enhance houses, and a few are quirky celebrations of tiny spaces. All are surrounded by mature trees, which I sprinkled in this selection. Finally not bad for the land of the fog, eh?

Mind you a new photographer has grabbed them in quick travels. Thus blame the blogger and not the gardeners for anything you find lacking.

Enjoy.
