Green Grows the City is one of my favorite books, by one of my favorite authors, Beverly Nichols. If you aren't familiar with his works--and you garden--I highly recommend him. He is the only garden writer that I absolutely adore.
I'm not the only gardening nut in my neighborhood, these are photos that I took on a walk the other day. We have our challenges in the city, so sometimes I just need to remind myself that there is loveliness everywhere.
