Green Roof and Walls


Yesterday was scorching hot here so I joined a friend for an outdoor dip in the outdoor pool at Sport Plaza in Amsterdam West. What a wonderful surprise I had, when she showed me the well established green roof and walls, blanketing the building. I was even more delighted to see dandelions thriving in it here and there, with dense stretches of Pelargonium sp. So at least in part, this wall is carpeted with edible perennial herbs!

Further enhancing my swimming experience; the building has lovely trees around it, including several Ginkgo.
