Rambla Poblenou upwards from Passeig Calvell and before Perelló street, on the right side, there is a piece of land full of debris after some buildings have been demolished. Probably blocks of apartments will be built soon. In an end of this piece of land there is a two story dwelling beside a long forgotten terrain, still with broken tiles from buildings pulled down decades ago; excluded from city planning, full of dust and weeds. It is here that, somebody I don’t have the pleasure of having met, created a small garden, of about 2,5×5 meters. There is a small pine some notable cactuses and other plants that look healthy as result of loving care. The garden is limited by a little wall out of recycled bricks. From a landscaping point of view this little space is much more interesting than the pharaonic, absurd gardens of Diagonal Mar with their pretentious huge hanging pots. This humble garden is lovely to look at and I would dare to say that restores my faith in the human condition. Somebody, without any help, out of love for nature and beauty has created a little paradise in a harsh environment, with courage, taste and perseverance. Perhaps the art of living is just trying to work our own little paradise in usually not very helping circumstances.
