Hidden Boston Beauty #3

A community garden is a thing of beauty. Its beauty is more than what you see – it’s the underlying notion of people working together that instills something greater. The stories behind each plot, the neighbors that strike up conversations with any passing stranger, and the sense of genuine community add to the overall enchantment of such spaces.

It certainly helps that along with the vegetables and vines there are flowers that exist solely to delight with their dress.

I’ve passed this way before, but whenever I need a respite from concrete sidewalks and skyscrapers, I take a turn and wander along the verdant path. To recharge and reconnect with the living.

Some of the plants along the way are grand and bold, while others require up-close examination to leave an impression. All are worth a look.
