Green - balm for the eyes

 

A private front garden in Soest - a rarity in our urban areas, for the most front gardens are now parking places - as I noticed in England, too.

I like the little blue flowers, too. Our cities are overrun with cars and some roads so narrow especially in older areas that driving along the road is so difficult. People have used their gardens for parking but then the loss of vegetation affects our wildlife and also leads to flooding with the hard surfaces The Mad House's car park was made with a porous surface.
Blue and green work so well together here Philine. I too am saddened by the conversion of front gardens to parking spaces, although I do sympathise with the problems faced by car owners.
A lovely shady spot that will be valuable soon in summer's heat.

Lovely garden
very soothing, Philine. i am delighted you chose to present this low down angle. you made a good observation. it is easy to think of the short term and devote space to parking and therefore totally miss out on such green spaces
These look nice. Sadly in the cul-de-sac behind us almost every front garden of the 16 houses is a car park with further cars parked on the road in front of them!
You are right Philine. At one time we needed room for 4 cars but now usually only one and sometimes 3 when both of the girls are here. So I am letting the garden encroach back a bit!
