The world's smallest park! The small spot of dirt was originally intended to house a streetlight, but after weeks passed and the streetlight never came, a columnist for the Oregon Journal named Dick Fagan planed a few flowers in the dirt and named it after his column: Mill Ends.
I feel like this little tree sprouting out of a dead piece of wood mirrors Dick Fagan planting his greenery in a forgotten spot of dirt.
