Searching for unique, funky, beautiful gardens in my ghetto

As stated in a previous blog post, I'm searching for unique, funky, and beautiful gardens in my ghetto. I feel that there is a need to show case the gardening skills of those who live in economically depressed areas because more often economically advantaged areas are showcased. Rarely are beautiful gardens, great restaurants, business and unique artists showcased in economically depressed areas. Instead we are bombarded with police shootouts, drug use, and crime.

I've been driving around my neighborhood looking at gardens and I've narrowed it down to a few. Unfortunately the heat and the smoke from the Willow fire has somewhat limited my mobility. My goal is to finish interviewing and picture taking by tomorrow (Friday) evening. Until then I'll be toting extra water bottles and eye drops in order to combat the haze and the heat. Stay posted and happy gardening!
