Even with limited space in the city, people seem to make an effort to have a small garden for themselves in Seoul. I loved seeing their carefully arranged gardens usually consisting of small potted plants. They make it look so good.

This has inspired me to do the same at home. I miss gardening so much.

  4. Love all the different pots/plants in the second one! An eclectic collection of potted plants is really appealing to me. Gorgeous colour in that first one too.

  6. Try to do the same in France and you will be very desappointed!!! I've seen such little street gardens in Japan last year and I enjoyed them very much!!

  12. I don't have a green thumb, but I must admit I'm inspired to plant more! The ranunculus are my favorite.

  15. Oh, the ranunculus! I love that photo... and that plant.

    Planted my own 'potted garden' last weekend! It's one of my favourite parts about summer.

  16. I noticed this in Japan too! Everywhere people used their little spaces to grow plants. I think it is a bit harder here because it's not as humid. Good luck with your garden!

  19. I love this - it just goes to show that there really is a way, where there's a will. I read recently about a project proposal out of Milan for mobile, parking-space-sized gardens that people could rent - or rather, they would rent the parking space as they would for their car, and park a green mobile there, instead! I think it's a brilliant idea, especially considering the inclusion of Wifi hotspot, bench, street lamp... so many birds with a single stone: http://www.smart-urban-stage.com/blog/future-of-the-city/crowded-cities/ I can't think of a place this couldn't work. Fewer cars, more green!
