philly magic gardens

On Monday, my friend Cher and I took a little trip into Philly to go to the Magic Gardens. If you haven't heard of it, the short story is that this artist spent almost twenty years building a mosaic maze with things he just found on a lot in Philly. Due to rising costs of real estate, he was forced to sell the land. But the community rallied behind him and saved the property from being bulldozed, and it now an outdoor museum to walk through. And it is GORGEOUS. Pictures definitely don't do it justice. Cher and I just kept walking around and saying "oh my gosh" and staring wide eyed. Tip though, it's smaller than you would expect, so plan lots of other stuff in the day if you plan on going!
