花草里斯本

Nature in Lisbon

 

里斯本陽光充沛,花草茂盛,好靚呀!

 

里斯本的「花草罐頭」最令我印象深刻。

里斯本CS Host Angela與Kico帶我去他們最喜歡的café,café門外的街道立有短柱,靠近café的短柱上,縛着幾個空罐頭,空罐內灌滿泥土,上種花草。

空罐變花瓶不浪費,些許綠意就令整個空間雅緻又清新,最難得是當地政府無取蹄民間智慧,放任綠意增生;如果這情況發生在香港,「花草罐頭」大概翌日就以「破壞市容」之名被剷走了。

 

究竟誰在破壞市容?

 

 

 

Sunshine Lisbon cherished plants and nature grew beautiful in Lisbon, love it!

 

The Lisbon ‘Plant Cans’ impressed me most.

My CS Host Angela and Kico took me to their favourite café in Lisbon. There are pillars standing in the street outside the café and there are a few used cans tied in the top of the pillars. Soil was put in the cans and plants inside.

Used cans up-cycled to be vases and greens make the environment beautiful. The best part is the local government didn’t stop this small improvement and let the greens grow.

If this was happening in Hong Kong, those ‘Plant Cans’ would be moved away next day by the authority in the name of ‘Tidy up the city’.

 

Who do not tidy the city?
