The surrounding vicinity of the Comcast Center is typically lacking in green space, until now. If you walked past the tower on Monday, you might have noticed a bright green pop up garden at the West Plaza.

It's the Philadelphia Horticultural Society's first pop up garden of the year, to celebrate the annual Comcast Cares Day. From now until Friday you can check out the space, which features 100 grape hyacinths, 100 yellow daffodils, wheat grass, and river birch trees. According to the PHS, the garden elements "will grow and change over the course of its life in the Comcast courtyard."

Seth Pearsoll, one of the designers of the garden, documented the construction process on Instagram. See how the garden was built from start to finish.

Yesterday, there was free yoga, but today you might catch a celebrity sighting— David Bromstad, winner of the first season of HGTV’s Design Star and host of Color Splash will visit the garden this afternoon.

[Editor's note: A previous version of this article stated that free yoga event was today. It was yesterday. We apologize for the error.]
