Was lucky enough to be invited to have lunch in the community garden the other day -- about 2/3 of an acre of little well-tended plots with flowers and veggies.
There are two picnic tables and a pergola and some common spaces --it's just behind the church parking lot and reminds me a little of the small gardens you see beside the railway tracks in Poland.
It's the season for columbine and lilies
not to mention the roses and clematis
and the lush prom-dressiness of peonies
a bird bath and mint run amock
a rather dull but interesting colored columbine
something I can't name (dear readers, please advise).
Sage grows like a weed and looks pretty, sage and onion stuffing, fegato alla salvia, hmm much more sage than anyone could possibly cook with.
One little plot quite wild with poppies and roses. So a little heaven amidst concrete. I know there has been much too much about greenery in this blog lately, but it is MAY after all!
