Micro-Gardening in Paris

With over two million citizens in Paris, space is at a premium when it comes to gardening. Yet Parisians have found a way to add color to windows and balconies of apartments throughout the city. Elaborate boxes, pots of flowers, or simple greens drew our eyes upward wherever we traversed across the city.

Cafes and shops on the ground floor must appreciate the color at windows above their place of business. Those businesses with flowers above certainly offered greater attraction for me and it was fun to swing a camera up to capture lovely micro-gardens high above our heads.
