I had the car out for a filter and oil change last week, and on the way home stopped at the 5 Senses Garden. This is a nice little place that is part of the local ‘Greenbelt’ – a trail/walkway that circles the city and provides a bit of nature in the midst of concrete.
I met Shirley while I was there. She is a woman who practically single-handedly keeps the garden cleaned up and looking nice. She tried to recruit me to stop by and help some days. I told her I’d be back in a couple of weeks once I had another weekday off.
