Graffiti Overtaken by the Wild--Cork, Ireland
Cork lacks green space; there is no central park on the island where one can lounge during their lunch break or run their dog around. One must venture at least 15 minutes outside city center to find a notable green space. However, despite the lack of green lawn, lush gardens have a presence in the city, and if you're lucky enough, you'll get a peak. Crawling ivy, tendrils and flower bushes peak over rock walls of private residences, through rotten wooden gates and wind around copper pipes. This little hint of nature serves as a refresher from the city scenery--a secret garden.
