Before leaving the small German town of Isselburg-Anholt in the summer of 2016, Himself and I made one last discovery that I found worth stopping and taking photographs of.

As per the usual theme of this blog it’s something very normal and everyday, just a bog-standard car parking building.

But since I also like quirky things, this is a car park with a twist.

First, there are the ivy covered outside walls, ivy can be both a blessing and a curse, especially if you have to remove it from brickwork, but it’s a great way to “green” vertical spaces.

This twist here is the roof, which is also green, there are what appears to be grasses and wild flowers like  lavender carpeting the roof and providing an excellent spot for insects and bees as well as adding more plant life into the town.

If that is lavender, then it must smell wonderful whenever you are close to it as well.

I’d love to see more plants added to cities and towns like this, it’s a fabulous idea!
