Places I Have Loved: Sweetman's Garden

I have written about how Sweetman's Garden was at one time it was at risk of being compromised by the City. Thankfully it is safe. Well, for now at least.

It truly is an enchanting place, and I thought that I would share some photos I took when I visited there last week. I hope you all enjoy the little tour!

On the other side of this little cedar hedge is a whole other world...{the witchy part of me certainly appreciates this symbolism ;)}

The garden also has a program for kids to grow veggies :D

Beautiful! What's the flower in the photo under that of the tansy?

Hi Beks! Those two pretties below the tansy are staghorn sumac {Rhus typhina} drupes. Tasty and pretty!

I am working on a post of staghorn sumac recipes, but I want to harvest some more first. :)

Ooh, I look forward to that - not that I have any sumac hehe, but I've heard a lot about it and it's on my ever increasing wants list ;) Thanks!

Beks: Perhaps that is something that I can add to the "to send" list. :)

Elizabeth: Thanks! :)
