A flower blooms from the grey concrete. A morsel of nature in the urban jungle.
Strolling the streets of the city, Maija Louekari marvels at the tiny gardens tucked into the nooks of urban life. Siirtolapuutarha is Finnish for “allotment”, which refers to the community gardens allotted to city dwellers.
Vibrant colors burst from bold, black outlines. It’s a traditional flower pattern renewed into a modern wonder. A splash of life budding into a monochrome landscape.
A flower steals the hardened heart of the city.
