One of my planned outings today was to dispose of a bag of garbage. Not exciting, I know, but necessary all the same.
A notice here in the kitchen says that it’s to be dropped off at the community centre. That was easy enough to find on the ol’ Google machine and off I went.
I actually decided to take a different route than Google maps had suggested. The route it proposed was mostly the same route I’ve done for most other places I’ve gone whereas the other one would bring me somewhere entirely different.
It brought me to the police station.
Not exactly what I was going for so I backtracked and took Google’s original route. Not that it mattered much. Yes, it almost doubled the time it took, but that only meant it took about 11 minutes instead of 6. Hardly enough to put a crimp in my day.
Anywayyyyy….on with the story!
On the other side of the road from the garbage/recycling/community centre is a place called Tech Amergin – a community arts and education centre.
When I crossed to that side of the road to head further back into the village, I saw a sign that they have a community garden and visitors were welcome.
I thought, “Hey! I’m a visitor!” So in I went.
If you’re thinking fancy botanical gardens of large urban centres, get that thought out of your mind. You’ll only be disappointed.
But if you adjust your expectations you’ll be charmed.
It was lovely. Nothing fancy and a bit unkempt in parts, but maybe that’s how it’s supposed to be.
In any event, it was a lovely and tranquil spot to poke around and sit for a little while. I’d have stayed longer, but it was quite warm out today and the garden was in full sun, with hardly any breeze – the trifecta of things that send me inside. 🙂
I snapped a few shots before I left, though.
Hope you enjoy them!

The first time I saw them 20 years ago I was surprised, too!
