Thank you, Anonymous Urban Gardner

August 11, 2015

In visiting Alexandria, VA for business, I passed this little garden twice a day as I walked from the hotel to the office and back again.  Finally, on the last day I stopped to take a closer look.

The garden, spread into three beds, is at the corner of Duke and Henry in Alexandria, Virginia.  The first bed, closest to the corner, contains vegetables including squash.  The middle bed holds the herbs, and the third bed has a nice selection of colorful flowers.

The garden is a bright spot on an otherwise unremarkable spot of dirt.  It provides food, flavors, and a splash of color that lightens the mood and touches the senses.

Thank you to the anonymous gardener who took the time and trouble to make this offering.
