Sydney Plant Wall.

We stayed in Sydney for a few days in early January - this was the first time I had been in Sydney for anything other than work.  Although it was stinking hot, I rather enjoyed it.

As we were walking out for a day of typical tourist fare, I found this wall covered in plants - I had read about these 'vertical gardens' before, but never had a close look at one.  I really liked this combination of colours and textures.



You can find more macro shots (if this is what these are) at Macro Monday and I love Macro

Beautiful!
I wonder how much water it takes to keep it alive.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!

I have always wanted to build a vertical garden. This is such a peaceful mixl of textures and colors, with just enough punch to not be boring. Thanks for sharing.

Now that's a wall I like. I wouldn't mind being surrounded by walls like that...spaced a bit away from the house, but what privacy they would provide. Beautiful!

The purple queen is one of my favorite garden plants, and I was delighted to see it blooming and happy on the other side of the world :) terrific photos here....

Oh neat! I've never heard of a vertical garden, but it makes good sense in an urban environment!
