Vest Pocket Gardens
I always am amazed at the beauty of vest pocket gardens. Kurt and I stumbled one recently on east sixth street between B and C. There are a few in that neighborhood, one at the corner 6th and B with a wooden sculpture by Eddie Boros (20 years in the making) that is the subject of a recent controversy. It will be pickpocketed by the city—see it soon.
