A summery surprise on 6th Street

Each time I walk past the vacant lot on the north side of E 6th Street, just east of 1st Avenue, I fantasize about building a little log cabin in this fairy wood.

On this day of torrential rain, the ground cover is lush and green.  But, there's something more going on here...look closer.

I've seen them here and there in the community gardens, but never in an unattended space like this.  And the lot is filled with them.

The birds and mice will have a field day.
