A Communal Garden

As soon as the days begin to warm in spring and the forecast indicates no cold spells, landscapers come in to plant flowers in the communal garden of the building I live in.

As the trees become green and the flowers take hold, the garden becomes a haven in the city.

And sometimes you may even come upon one of nature’s shy creatures who scamper away as soon as you are seen.

The start of spring brings budding flowers and colour to our world after the grey, browns and whites of winter. An array of colour and beauty which is enjoyed even more during the summer.

Do you enjoy spring and summer gardens?

  1. You’ve such a lovely garden to enjoy. I like that they’ve plenty of benches for you all to use. It’s definitely an amenity that I’d look for if I were to go back to living in a large, multi-dwelling building again.


    1. What is even nicer, John, is that people actually use the benches. They have other gardens as well that are used where people take their dogs and where one can barbecue.
