Isaiah Zagar's Magic Garden    Isaiah Zagar's Magic Garden, on the 1000 block of South Street, was open to the public on Saturday. I went there with a couple friends who were visiting Philly from out of town. It was my first time ever being inside the garden, even though I live 3 blocks away from it. I'm not sure how long Isaiah has had it open to the public (I suspect not very long). It was very beautiful inside. I'd definitely recommend visiting (admission is a $2 "donation")
