Carefully Tended Community Garden
ONE OF THE littlest libraries in BC is at the foot of the Alexandra Community Garden. I might be reading too much into it but the honour system must flourish here amid the plants since there is no need for a library card.
Thanks to the welcoming atmosphere created by volunteer-tenders from the Rosemary Heights and White Rock Senior Villages, passersby can pause a while to read or dream or watch the vegetables grow.
I noticed that the birdbath was scrubbed clean and replenished with water.
The daisies were primped and gloriously beaming.
Strawberry plants were heartily growing and a picnic table ...
set with a vase full of flowers was prettily arranged by the garden tenders.
Down the street, a poppy with bluish-gray spores waved as I walked by. I have seen pink and red but this lone pale-purple bloom was a garden unto itself.
