Here’s a place where people have changed a little part of their town into something lovely.  An old traffic-calming barrier is now a lush rock garden with a brick walkway through it. In the West End at Bidwell and Pendrell, near Lord Roberts Elementary school.

Aesthetically, only the ugly yellow bollards jar the senses — but then again, they do keep motor vehicle operators from trampling the garden.
Is there, I wonder, any appetite for an Art Deco bollard replacement contest?
