(Almost) Wordless Wednesday- Philadelphia's Magic Gardens


For those following my updates from our trip to Philadelphia, this was one of my favorite stops- a must for any age or interest; The Philadelphia Magic Gardens. We had stumbled across their website, and discovered this hidden gem on accident- but anyone who lives locally and has not been needs to add it to their list! When we visited it was a drizzly day, but the art and curiosity lovers were still out, despite dangerous conditions (the walls and floors are mosaic). Needless to say, capturing all of the color and wonder was a little rough in the weather, hopefully I've done justice. The Magic Gardens are the result of a 14 year endeavor by eccentric Philadelphia artist and humanitarian Isaiah Zagar, who hand tunneled each walkway, and placed (nearly) every piece of glass/stone/tire/trash? The result is something awe inspiring and humbling!
