There’s a community garden in Downtown Mesa that I’d heard about but hadn’t been to until my sister-in-law Liz was in town.
Isn’t it funny how you tend to see more of your city when someone is visiting?
I wasn’t expecting to see much, because August in Phoenix is rough on plants and only the most hardy survive. But there were still a fair number of things growing – veggies and vinca and this gorgeous trumpet vine with orange flowers and long green pods.
The garden is surrounded by walls with colorful murals, and there’s a Little Free Library made from an old phone booth.
I’ll definitely have to return later this fall!
