“Los Angeles has many scruffy, unmanicured median strips, but there’s one that draws attention for another reason: It’s really nice, with constant improvements such as rock and seashell gardens, and terraced landscaping.”

The credit does not go to city workers, reports the LA Times. It goes to a homeless guy.

“I like to think of it as a contribution to the universe,” said Jeff Harmes, a 46-year-old Colorado native who has been homeless a long time.

“I just put in a rosebush,” Harmes told columnist Steve Lopez with great excitement. “Someone brought it to me last night.”
