This was outside someone's house, right by the sidewalk.
There is a place on 17th Ave where a sidewalk runs across the road, so that it's closed to cars but open to bikes and pedestrians. Along this sidewalk are plantings - tall trees covered in moss, like this one, and giant patches of sword fern, plus a carpet of winter aconite overwhelming the English ivy invasion. I call it the Magic Place or the Magic Walkway. It's like a little hidden enchanted garden. And apparently, someone has given it some enchanted inhabitants.
