I spent yesterday morning driving around the neighborhoods of Charlotte visiting every community garden I could find. In the process, I finally drove through some neighborhoods I've always passed by (in auto or running). Charlotte truly has some splendid and idyllic neighborhoods. Above is a church I slammed my breaks at on my way back from the Midwood Park Community Garden. This is at Kilgo Methodist Church on Belvedere Ave, and who'd a thought a "pumpkin patch" existed here?
Funny how much is so near around us, and yet beyond our radar...I lived a year and a half in the Plaza-Midwood area and never was aware these majestic churches were tucked in the neighborhood! I'll make sure I vary my running routes from now on.
