Small Gardens

In Japan, the smallest of gardens burst at the seams of impossibly tiny spaces. Everywhere, potted plants lean precariously, making me imagine that the first mad-old-woman-house-plant-gardener must have been born in Japan. I also imagine, that because of the flowers and greenery spilling into the streets, more people remain sane in a city full of concrete, bricks and asphalt. They certainly made me smile.
