Situated deep inside Edgewood Park in New Haven, Connecticut, was a community garden that was splendidly camouflaged beneath the big trees. I went there to see carnival for charity event (in September), but then found out there’s a beautiful garden that had collections of rows upon rows of flower plants, shrubs and herbs. The park itself was spectacular in its 120-plus acres area. It had big trees and lush-green lawn with small hill and valley for children who love to go crazy outdoor. But as soon as I stepped into the garden, I was lost. I would never thought that it was a community garden. Since I thought some community gardens are nothing like garden that I imagine. Between Delphiniums, Foxgloves, Salvias, Lamb’s Ears, Dahlias, Roses, raspberries, tomatoes, I couldn’t stop admiring my surrounding. The garden was crowded with colors and blooming flowers. What an enlightenment it was to be in it.
