One of the things that I instantly fell in love with in our new place was the huge community garden next door and right now it’s in full bloom. Even though the waiting list is 3+ yrs, I love walking around and having picnics in the early afternoon there. It’s getting more beautiful every day and there’s something about working in a garden that makes everyone super friendly. I’ve never met a grumpy person yet in the garden. It’s quite a little escape. Also, I think the fact that people have to wait for 3 years make them a little more responsible for making it beautiful.
