Berlin´s (secret) garden

In the vibrant Berlin neighbourhood, Kreuzberg, you can find the Prinzessinneng√§rten (Princess Gardens), a mobile urban farm. The garden project was launched in 2009 at a site which had been a wasteland for over half a century. The once hidden and forgotten corner made place for a little urban garden adventure : Fruit, vegetables and herbs are being grown in wooden boxes, milk cartons, ....and everything is organic - no pesticides allowed. During winter the mobile garden moves into the Eisenbahnmarkthalle, an old covered market in Kreuzberg. 
You can walk through the garden and have a drink or a snack, made out of fresh garden vegetables and herbs of course. Last week they even organised a flea market in the garden.

The Berlin mobile garden is worth a visit. Please visit the website if you want to find out where to find the garden or how to participate in the project: prinzessinnengarten

Dear Photograph

This idea is genius in it´s simplicity. Hold up a photograph from the past in front of the same location where it was shot and photograph this setting in the present. What a beautiful way to remember the old days. You will be surprised how much things have changed over the years.

Dear Photograph was founded in May 2011, by Taylor Jones and has become very popular since. 
I posted my favorites pics but there are many more on the website or you can even upload a picture yourself.
