This is an old block of flats at Selegie where my classmate and a relative used to stay. After some upgrading a few years ago, the facade definitely looked more presentable.
I passed by the area recently and took these photos of the gardening by the residents of the block. Most of them are making full use of the opening in the railings to grow plants. Anyway, I do think that people who stay in older residences are often more attuned towards growing plants. I absolutely adore the Plumbago capensis or auriculata with blue flowers. Mine is growing through a gap in the corridor wall and hope it would soon look like this.
