There is a secret garden. Its located in the metropolis of downtown Birmingham, beyond the traffic wizzing by and trains that holler a few blocks away. Sitting next to a busy interstate and landmark factory, this quite garden blooms. You have to poke around to find it. But mother and I did, and found ourselves in a world of great beauty. We discovered paradise beyond the parking lots! Here are some photos from this garden (located at behind a small house that serves as the Birmingham Historical Society).
