Gardening without gardens

gardening with no gardenAlmost all Parisians live in apartments. A lucky few have a terrace or balcony where they can grow plants. Most of us have to make do with house plants and window boxes if we want to garden. But it is amazing what people can create even with no outdoor space. Here is one of my favourite examples: it’s the front of a second floor apartment on the trendy rue du Cherche-Midi in the 6th arrondissement. I walk past there every week and the display always looks vibrant and eye-catching.  Even though there are few plants here that I would normally choose to grow, somehow it makes me smile every time.
