Still, I am drawn to the decay. I spotted this old fountain and overgrown garden on a walk. I wanted to get in there and sit surrounded by it all, see what there was to discover. But that would be wrong, so I walked on.
I found this greenhouse on a neighborhood walk. Looking up the property online I discovered it's part of an Alternative High School—a Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences Program. All of course abandoned since at least last spring, when COVID regulations went into effect. However it looks a little unloved for even longer than that.
It's locked, but there are cracks at the seams which I could put most of my arm through—plus all it contains are bags of soil, amendments and empty pots.
Someone put these bromeliads in a container, they're obviously not enjoying winter.
In fact they're officially rotten, but it was a nice try!
Just for trash? Or as planters? I hope the latter.
Nice bench to sit a spell and take it all in.
It's not everyday you see a wheelbarrow in a stock tank.
I looked for fishes in these, but didn't see any.
Just water and plants.
A wide-shot of sorts.
And a piece of metal tossed aside. I posted this image on Instagram and someone said it looked like Betty Rubble. Yep, I see that.
