Gardens on Wheels

garden on wheels
Some people have a lovely commute to work - through the historic part of town, cobblestone lined streets, kids swinging their arms as they walk to school - I am not one of those people.  Living on a street with lots of car traffic and only 0.5 km from Cycle Chic / Copenhagenize's Frederiksberg office, I don't expect to see much.

This morning however a pop-up garden rolled its way in between the bicycles and cars.  Carved wooden benches, wispy trees, and bright fragrant flowers decorated the side of the street - inviting us passers by to relax with a coffee, giving a sense of personality and liveability to this street.  It'll be rolling along to another neighbourhood tonight.  While it was short lived, it left an impression and hope that one day we'll have more people-friendly streets, like in Rio...

Until then, here are a few more Copenhagen style gardens on the move.
