I am guilty of looking down, sometimes too much. Partly due to dog owners thinking cleaning up after their pet is merely an option (to be avoided) and uneven side walks.
I went into central after work today to meet up with a friend for dinner and D came along last minute as he works close to the restaurant. On our way there I momentarily looked up and glimpsed a painting by street artist Stik. I loved the piece I saw last year here on the Alternative London tour. As we had time to spare we went to check it out.
While checking out Stiks we happened upon a garden.
The Phoenix Garden is a community garden run by volunteers and kindly is open to outside visitors. It is maintained using sustainable methods and they use plants which are meant to look good year round. Can anyone identify that plant that is close up? We couldn’t but I thought it was pretty. Thanks to Mandy, as she’s always saying to look up because you will always find something interesting in London.
