I've been driving by this triangular island in a crazy-confusing intersection for as long as we've lived here (11 years now). This summer it was planted up in an exuberant way I've never noticed before, maybe because of their inclusion of the Zinnia?
Zinnia and sunflowers, an over-the-top amount of both.
The garden had to be planted and maintained by a neighbor. This is not a city planting.
Finaly getting closer I expected to see stems cut down...
By the person who planted it or some passerby who felt a right to the blossoms. But that was not the case.
Such riches, stems and stems and stems....
A few of the sunflowers had been cut down, whether by nature or the gardener.
The odd thing is they all had this foil band around them.
What does it do? What does it mean?
I wish I knew who to thank for this glorious floral celebration, their generosity has definitely benefited the surrounding community.
