We recently travelled to Italy, and besides enjoying the food and culture, the sights were pretty spectacular, too. Since this is where I share my love of gardening, I’ve decided to show you some of the lovely window plants we saw along the way.
Although Italy is a much bigger country than Singapore, it has some pretty built-up cities. I was happy to see these apartment windows in Rome sporting pretty plants.
Some places had something simple, like this pot of ivy sitting on the window ledge.
Others had a mix of different plants sitting on the window ledge.
Yet others had wall-mounted holders for their plants.
This was a very tasteful combination of tall plants on the ground with wall-mounted flowering plants. I noticed that the cornucopia basket seemed to be in vogue in some places.
Finally, my favourite one, in San Gimignano – simple but homey.
There will be more, because it was late spring and there were lots more flowers and plants to be seen…
