Picky, picky

On that note...

So this community garden on 8th Street is open from midnight to 5 p.m.? Or noon to 5 p.m.? I always get confused.

As Wikipedia notes:
Some people assume that 12 a.m. and 12 p.m. signify noon and midnight, respectively. The confusion also comes from 12 a.m. seeming to be the next hour in the 10 a.m., 11 a.m. series, but 12.01 p.m. being just after noon. In addition, p.m. is often associated with night so 12 a.m. may seem to be midnight.
