A Sidewalk Container Garden

Most Tuesdays, I go for a walk in Old Town Lansing with my friend Cynthia. Often we end with tea or lunch at Mama Bear’s Cafe‘.

On the way back to my car/her work, we pass by October Moon, a truly wonderful shop right next to the Robert Busby memorial bridge. In spite of the minor detail that there is no soil or grass in front of the shop, there is a wonderful (container) garden surrounding the doorway.


Since there is no shop to the river side, the garden spills over to a spot over the river. It is a wonderful, happy city view.


I love Old Town more, every time I go there. I love my city every day that the sun shines and the grass grows. Winter is rough for me, but memories like this help me through the frozen months.

Go, October Moon!

    Beautiful. And you’ve inspired me to visit Old Town Lansing. I live so close and know nothing about it. Thanks, Lynn.
