Putting wellies to good use – Carrer Cera

Another week behind us, and we are speeding into Summer with the Olympic Games kicking off tonight and hot weather for all of us in the Northern Hemisphere. Time to tend our plants, otherwise they will be parched. For those of us who live in cities that means the plants we have in our mini gardens. Lots of those here, in Barcelona! Here are just a few examples – enjoy!

Lovely window box – Carrer Riera Alta

Ever seen plants in a frame?

Green art – Carrer Floristes de la Rambla

I love how these plants have been framed and wouldn’t mind one or two of those for my own home!

Behind bars – Carrer Santa Agata

Fern welcome – Carrer Torrijos

Galvanised buckets on legs – what a lovely idea to use them as planters! But even the traditional balcony with pots hanging from the railing and on the ground is a fresh addition to any street, don’t you think?

Top and bottom – (I’ve forgotten where this is)

Party lights are always nice, but I really like them in here (below), with these pretty plants around them. Oh, and I’m in love with those purple variegated leaves! I think I might have to get a plant like that for my balcony!

Happy weekend, everyone! Enjoy tending your mini gardens (or maxi gardens if you are lucky to have one of those) and see you next Monday!
