Green Walls

I took this snap at the rear garden area of The Gun Shop Cafe last weekend - it looks like their green wall is made up of plenty of different herbs and nasturtiums in terracotta pots. 

Green walls seem to be a quickly growing trend - especially in corporate offices and restaurants.

But my favourite green walls are the more organic kind - looking back through my travel photos I realised I'm quite prone to snapping foilage covered buildings.

This one is from our honeymoon on 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen Mexico.

This one is from a backstreet in Rome.

We snuck into this amazing courtyard garden at one of the colleges in Oxford. They obviously have very dedicated gardeners.

I would have been happy to sit there all day.

This was another building in Oxford. I'm sure the ivy is terrible for the structure but it's just so pretty!
