"Green Fields" - The Good, The Bad & The Queen



This vegetable wall is on the front a parisian shop, the BHV. The name means "Bazar de l'Hotel de Ville" ("the Stores of the City Hall") because it's located in front of the City Hall. The one on the photo is a new, dedicated the the Mens. I've never been in this shop so don't ask me if it's interesting. The BHV is one of the three big store in Paris with the Galeries Lafayette and the Printemps ; they attract a lot of tourists during the year.

This is an interesting post. I have not seen anything like it before.

In cities where ground space is rare and at a premium price, it makes absolute sense to add greenery by going vertical! This is brilliant. I've been seeing photos of this kind of garden in Paris for several years in magazines, and I think it's breathtakingly beautiful. I wonder if it's difficult to maintain?

I have been in that store and bought some jeans at a very low price. It was the time of "soldes" so the store was packed with people!

I never noticed the ivy outside though....
