Upside down garden
Over the last few days I have been doing a bit of sightseeing with Flowerlady. We went to see the Palace Gardens in Turin (well what else would a Flowerlady want to see?) and then went for a stroll around the cobbled streets outside the Palace Gates. I came across this strange upside down garden (Il giardino capovolto) on the ceiling of a passageway which leads to a Bed and Breakfast situated in the courtyard. It is really quite well done and very effective, it certainly makes you look twice. The lettering is super (see detail) and the flowers are real "plastic" ones stuck to the ceiling. Very nice indeed!
