They aren't letting their lack of space keep them from having a garden! Good for them!
I'd be worried someone would steal them! I guess people in Japan wouldn't dare. :)Re the beaver on the building: it's somehow one of the symbols of Canada. They love their beavers. And moose (mooses?).
I love live greenery! I wish I was better at keeping mine alive. Perhaps once I move to a wetter climate I'll have better luck.
Kaori,This photo is so lovely. I feel these pots and plants reflect the warm personality of the owner. But I wonder how the family members can go in and out of the house as the pots and plants are put in front of the doors. Interesting people must be inside. Oh, I like this shot very much.Best wishes,keiko
They make me smile!
They are nice anyway... I am not a fan of identical pots, variety has its funny side: I even painted some pots to brighten them up.
I like them too! I'm not good at maintaining plants though.
My first reaction was like Rachel’s at the top. Look at that, a veritable garden along an eight-inch strip of concrete. I loved and was impressed by the ability and desire of Japanese people to grow plants in tiny places and spaces people in my own culture would hardly imagine.And Halcyon made me remember with fondness and high regard Japanese honesty and the low crime rate in Japan. I have seen crates of goods, covered only with tarps, left unguarded overnight outside shops and department stores. @ snowwhite: It looks like there is a kind of workshop or storage area behind the glass, sliding doors. It may even be somewhat open to the elements via the door on the far right. I would guess that the doors are seldom used, if ever. The house entrance door(s) that the residents use daily must surely be out of the frame of this evocative photo.
framing the house with hope. wonderful !daily athens photo
That is a fun shot. I'm impressed with myself if I can keep the yard weed-free, I'd never motivate myself to keep a bunch of plants like that.
The first thought that comes to my mind is how much watering you'd have to do to keep those up! :)
I stopped with this image.I like flowers and plants, but here it is also something with the lines that goes so well in your image.Well seen and well done!
nice diplay :)
Cootie pa-tootie! lol
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for the comments ;D
When I was in Japan, I did notice lots of random pots and plants - they are sweet tho!
