There is dense housing in Italy, so not many big yards. But, some balconies are covered in flowers and bushes, even a tree at one apartment! I love how they place flowers together, making full use of small spaces, as seen below. In a yard in Montesilvano, Italy. For the Flower of the Day Challenge... Continue Reading →
