Bike Gardening

We spotted this latest Tokyo garden yesterday in Tachikawa. Just outside the post office and at the intersection of two busy streets in a very industrial feeling area, this little garden just makes me smile every time.

The line-up of old motorbikes is eye-catching in itself, but then the added greenery is a perfect touch. In the warmer season, these bikes are full of leaves and blooms. In the lower photo the jade plants tucked in the corner by the door are almost discernable. It's a perfect example of the little gardens found just about everywhere here. I'm happy all over again just thinking about it.
