urban gardens *paris*
I am passionate about our urban life and have a keen interest in new urbanism. From that, I love urban gardens, urban parks, green roofs and walls. Our month in Europe left me even more enamoured with their way of creating a green sanctuary in small spaces. Little snippets of nature that bring joy, calm, health and honestly just look darn cute. What totally blew me away was the proliferation of potted plants outside front doors. They create such a welcoming atmosphere and also place faith in the population to enjoy them without taking them. There is something truly inspiring about this. Since coming home I find myself smiling when I walk past homes or businesses with pots outside the front door, as it immediately evokes memories of Paris and Copenhagen. Plant life in the city has the power to make me feel so much and be inspired to live healthily and mindfully.
