IF a picture is worth a thousand words, a few videos might be worth a small treasury in helping to get across a sense of the wonderful and highly improbable Lost Reef Cottage in Miami, FL, and its surrounding subtropical gardens, complete with excavated ancient coral reef . Here are glimpses of an unexpected oasis offering a quiet “grounding” in this most mad and wonderful of cities.
Where six or seven years ago sat a driveway,
and an expanse of concrete so wide and deep that one might suspect it must have been purchased on sale,
we found, quite to our surprise, the peaks of a coral formation hidden a few feet beneath the rocky Earth which the driveway had entombed for the last few decades of its ancient millenial watch.
Something new indeed had begun–
a true urban garden that now flourishes, awaiting only you for its completeness.
