I love murals: Garden of Delight

The Garden of Delight can be found at 203 S. Sartain Street, in Philadelphia.

An empty lot full of chunks of concrete became a community garden and work of art, transforming the entire neighborhood.

Artist David Quinn, "I love watercolor painting and wanted this have a flowing fantasy-like effect."

Both garden plots and mural were inspiring.

I love the idea of neighbors in a big city, getting together to grow food,
enjoy gardening and create a spot of beauty in their city.

"Murals are nourishing to the neighborhood."

And, oh by the way, the city doesn't want you diving in their pools. ;-)
