loisaida tree beds

Street trees are tough cookies. They survive in bad soil and polluted air. They give us back oxgen, and in the summer they cool our walks with their shade.

I like how people tend the street trees and create small gardens around the their beds. Here is a round-up of some of the tree beds in Loisaida this autumn.

  1. So varied and lovely! I’m glad the people in our city assert individuality and a love for nature within the communal parameters of our urban space. And your eye knows how to capture it. Thank you, Ileana.
