Street gardens in the Mission are looking fabulous.

A quick stroll through the neighborhood on the Fourth of July was a botanical deeelight.   Summer is definitely here.

Street corner garden in all its glory

When you gotta garden, nothing's gonna stop you. Great Fence!

Another great corner garden.

Who cares about concrete? We want plants!

And finally, the best chalk grafitto I’ve run into in the Mission.

Another plant fanatic speaks out.

    Love that chalk graffiti :) I heard about these street gardens on the news but have not yet seen them in person. I’ll have to check it out. It would be nice to see these all over SF.
