Daily Garden: Red Rooftop Garden


image by Sarah Dorio.

What do you think of this garden? I have to say — I kinda wouldn’t want to hang out here.  I find the red jarring, the chartreuse plantings to be too few and  hideous with the red, the patterned floor – too busy, the furniture too fussy, and the whole thing too exposed.  (I could go on…but I will stop with that)

I feel like I would only want to be here under the cover of darkness…I hope that would change the whole place entirely.   Maybe if any one of the elements where used? but not all of it all together.  Anyway — here is what interests me most… I love the challenge of trying to figure out cities by their skylines….and this one is stumping me… anyone know what city this is?

    I don’t mind the colors so much as the awkward frame. It looks much too small for the table. I would be afraid that birds would sit on it and add matching white blobs.
    It looks like a formal table for ten which just seems out of place on a rooftop. Too far from the kitchen, unless the shot is hiding something. But it does look bold and powerful, like a place where wealthy inlaws would intimidate a fiance. If your napkin sails off you are doomed!
