I love this little garden in the Mission. It sits in a quiet alley just a block away from bustling Guerrero (and one of the best bakeries in the city). What a lovely oasis.
The outside borders are lined with roses, lavender and other perennials. People obviously care about the place a lot. You can see into the garden from the street, and go inside if there’s someone working there.
The garden also has some huge fences! 10 feet tall with barbed wire (interwoven with spiky canes from the rose bushes and dead palm fronds!). I guess that’s gardening in the gritty city for ya.
