most people in Frankfurt live in small apartments. A lot of people have potted plants on their balcony but if they really want a place of their own to relax they rent a nearby plot from a garden association. These are tiny gardens, much like a typical back yard, but it was fun to see how everyone did their garden differently. It shows how people express themselves in their space.
Here are some pictures I took while walking around Sachsenhausen, the part of Frankfurt where I grew up.
While most of the gardens I saw where wild and overgrown, my sister’s garden was nicely manicured.
My son and nephew playing in my sister’s garden.
Every garden has a little house where people have little kitchens and even a bed for staying overnight.
I really enjoyed these lush, green gardens, especially because we live in the desert and our yard consists mostly of rocks and shrubs.
Have a lovely weekend,
