Shared gardens

Lundi, avril 5th, 2010

Believe or not, this scene was taken a few blocks away from the Gare du Nord train station. A neighbourhood initiative intents to bring back some of the spirit of backyards vegetable gardens of decades ago when many inhabitants  would rent small lots on the outskirts of the city. Therefore for a small annual fee, they can grow whatever they please right in the middle of a public place. Quite an unusual sight for the passer-by’s which wondered what a downtown Paris carot could taste like.  (click on picture to enlarge)
