The Gardens' summer exhibit, "Urban Nature," not only brings in references to the City through street murals and horticultural practices, it also challenges us to notice the little things around us. Humans, nature, and urban living collide regularly - it's up to us to take notice.

Early this spring I was mesmerized by plants breaking through concrete and black top at a gas station. Unwanted? Maybe. A beautiful point of contrast? Definitely.
