This story begins with an empty lot.  Mostly, at least.

The lot is across the street and is filled with weeds, trash, and other city debris.  As far as I can tell, it’s main use is as a toilet for the neighborhood dogs and cats.  Nothing has happened with this lot in at least the four years that we’ve lived here.  Nothing will either in the foreseeable future, according the alderman (another story there).

During the warm months, it fills with weeds that are routinely whacked down by city workers.  During the hot months, it turns brown.

We’ve become tired of this view from our window.

This year, we’ve decided to start converting the lot into a flower garden.

Welcome to Flowers for Kimbark.

  1. I rembmer ’98, when we dug 2-3 feet of garbage out of the northern feneline of this lot. The city came and picked up @ 100 big backs of waste that included — this is nasty — IV lines. Good luck with this. I’ll stop by and help some.
