Guerilla Garden

We are blessed in my city to have a lot of guerilla gardens.  In case you haven't heard of guerilla gardening yet, it is gardening on land that the gardeners do not have legal right to use, often an abandoned site or area not cared for by anyone.  We get a lot of guerilla gardening happening on the sides of city streets.  A lot of them are small little gardens planted around trees.

Guerilla gardeners certainly add a lot of beauty to the city and brighten up all kinds of neglected areas of land where people pass by.  These little gardens bring a smile to my lips and joy to my heart. I like to take photos of these gardens whenever I can.

Here is one guerilla garden.





And here is a  pretty pink clouds...just because ... it's Skywatch Friday.

…and you were asking about vermicelli/Sewayyan,
Sewayyan is a famous dish made from very thin
vermicelli cooked in milk sugar and dry nuts. It is Prepared during “Diwali”, “Eid”, and other happy occasions in parts of India and Bangladesh.

Beautiful sky, the colorful clouds are gorgeous. I like the idea of guerilla gardens, If the area is neglected why not make it beautiful with flowers. Your photos are lovely. Have a great day!

Beautiful - this is such a great idea ... I've heard of people involving the community and establishing guerilla veggie gardens ...

I had not heard of the term "Guerilla Garden" before, but it gives me an idea. We have a lot near us that is vacant - for sale. Well, since the economy took a nose dive in 2008, it has been for sale for a LONG time.

Maybe next year, I should call the number to ask if I can start a garden on the lot...at least the neighbors would be happy!

I've never heard of the term guerrilla garden - it describes them so well. It's a lovely idea. Yesterday evening we watched a programme about Samuel Hearne, who explored much of Northern Canada in the 18th century and was an advocate for travelling as locals do. Such an interesting life...
Have a good weekend Penny.

I have never heard of guerilla gardening but what a great idea. I have never really lived in a town with out a garden of my own, so maybe this is why I have never heard of it. Love your photos and the sky is stunning. Have a great week Diane
