Cool works of art in the municipal garden in Pittsburgh
The natural beauty can be found quite unexpectedly. Kristin Hughes has discovered them in a deserted plot behind her house in Pittsburgh. She decided then, since to build a communal garden area of 330 square metres.
With the help of high schoolers and the organization grow Pittsburgh, it has formed the flowerbeds with brick from the demolished House and donated lumber. Now, Meerrettiche, sweet potatoes, asparagus, purple magic beans, herbs, blueberries, black currants and fruit trees were blooming in the garden. The master master mosaic gave this great chums Lauren Jean and McLaughlin and then the community has the octopuses Garden named.
