Summer blackberries in Tokyo


This blackberry bush, supported by plastic poles and rope, remind me of my friend Chris Berthelsen’s amazing Fixes blog. It has all the classic elements: use of public space in unexpected way, display of citizens’ care and skills, recycling of simple materials to make something useful and wonderous.

This is one of my favorite neighborhood gardens. In the past, she has grown rice in a bucket, gorgeous peonies, cymbidium orchids, tulips, roses, hydrangea, and geraniums.
