small wonders in an empty lot

I love discovering wonder where you least expect it. Like in an empty lot.

On my way to work, there's nothing much around the place where I transfer from Bus One to Bus Two. Except an empty lot. Which really doesn't make the wait between busses any shorter. I mean, it's not like waiting for the bus at a stop next to a newsstand, or a pet store, or a Rube Goldberg machine.

But a couple of weeks ago, on a Monday morning, look what had appeared!

A garden! On stilts! With roots showing! Fantastic!

It stayed there for a week or two, then disappeared again.


A crop circle appeared! Ok, a gravel circle. But still!

I don't know what's going on, but I like it.

I was playing the 2001 Space Odessey song to myself when I was looking at those ever-closer pictures of the garden on stilts... dah... daaaahh... DAH... DA-DAH!! Hee.

Maybe they're going to build a small garden??? Hmmm....wouldn't that be nice?

Were the plants real? Shouldn't they wilt and die with their roots exposed like that? Poor little things.

I'm pretty sure they were plastic. They look too uniform to be real, and yeah, they'd die like that...

yes yes yes.. i look out onto this desolate parking lot from my house and that morning when I saw the little plants, I almost cried. I think there is green growing from the circle now.. (:
