NEW YORK CITY MINI-GARDENS

I’m still reeling from the vast open spaces of Utah and noticing with a kind of sweet sadness the ways that my fellow New Yorkers use small, confined spaces to bring pleasure and beauty to themselves and others.  Except for those lucky few who own town houses or garden apartments, New Yorkers are forced to make miniature gardens in containers or window boxes, often raising that endeavor to a fine art.  Landscape architects also do a fine job of planting stunning borders in front of tony buildings.

  1. Loved seeing these….. I am always very aware of little pockets of beauty in the most unexpected places. Bless our neighbors who share with us! And hats off to neighborhood volunteers who maintain some of our little jewels of public plantings here and there!!
