Each Spring, Home Depot sets up a garden center behind an abandoned Saturn auto dealership in Oceanside, CA. We’d never driven behind the dealership before and decided to check out the plants and pots. A lot which was once filled with shiny new cars and excitement was dismal indeed. Without the temporary nursery, it was just another derelict property.
On our way off the car lot, a message on the side of an old building captured my attention, the trash and graffiti around it spoke volumes about our society.
