One of the best things about wandering around in a city is happening upon something like this.
The work of Isaiah Zagar. This jewel is Philadelphia's Magic Gardens. Smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood. I had not been aware of this mosaic mural artist before and was completely delighted by this "discovery".
We were between sessions at our conference and did not have time to do the formal tour of the gardens. No matter. Yet another reason to go back.
Before we started our hike back to the convention center, we stopped in a warm coffee shop with a nice barista who happily made us a cortado. Can you say icing on the cake?
Philadelphia you have endeared yourself to me.
