SECRET LIFE OF PLANTS

SPOTTED IN ASTORIA, NY : at the triangle formed between 8th St., Astoria Blvd., and 30th Ave./Main Ave, a community garden. I find it so interesting that this 25,000 square feet plot can completely transform a neighborhood.  When I first moved  New York City, gardens were the last thing on my mind. I anticipated city lights, concrete sidewalks, tall sky scrapers, smog and  public transportation. Surprising,  I found  the Two Coves community garden two minutes from my apartment. As the winter quickly approaches, I look forward to the smell of fresh basil, Thyme and Oregano.
