What inspires me in life is…
Success against the odds.
The unexpected hero, like the little train that could…
In the garden, I find inspiration everywhere, but this roadside garden sent my inspiration barometer soaring!
Talk about against the odds…
I was driving through not a great part of LA to check out a granite yard for a client & had to pull over when I saw this.
Right off the side of the freeway a veggie garden being tended. ( look across the street to get a sense of where this garden is thriving )
Anyone who gardens knows growing your own flowers, plants & food can be challenging – oh so rewarding – but challenging.
Growing your own in this spot in the shadow of the freeway with no irrigation might be the ultimate gardening challenge.
It is an inspiring oasis.
Inspiration is a wonderful thing. It bouys the spirits, sets the mind working and is sometimes just the magic seed needed to make things happen.
We will be planting a bigger vegetable & fruit garden this year. In part due to my having stumbled upon this urban oasis.
What inspires you?
