Such A Huge Wall, Such Tiny Houses…

I’m digging into my many archive posts because I’m still not mobile, but this post makes me smile today just as much as the day I first too these photographs.

I’d been looking for a fancy dress item for Little Mr so came to find a shop in the Regentessekwartier.

Sadly the shop I wanted was closed at the time but in a side street a few meters away I spied a very large wall with a few birdhouses on it.

The wall is the end of a row of three story joined-up appartments which for some reason doesn’t end at the corner of the street.

Ok, birdhouses are not so unusual but the “frame” that encompasses them is rather eye-catching.

I’m seriously wondering what’s going on with the little “roof” arrangement on the top. Is this weather proofing for bird houses?

I zoomed in on the original image (I have to resize the images I post on the blog because otherwise the photos run off the screen and do nasty things to the text).

On the zoomed in image it becomes clear that there is a little shelf under the roof and if I can make it out, I think there might even be smaller birdhouses tucked in beneath the ends of the roof. Either way it’s an interesting piece of garden architecture, even if it is dwarfed by the emptiness of the large wall it’s attached to.
