City 'gardens' in Osaka

Although the houses around my neighbourhood are usually without a garden, the residents often have a variety of plant pots outside the front of their house. 

The most elaborate of these 'gardens' are beautifully tiered layers of flowers and small trees (even the odd palm tree!), but here are a few of my favourite plant pots from out and about :) 
p.s. I am a big fan of ornamental cabbage.

The metal structure in the centre of the picture is used to hang clothes to dry.

Aren't they lovely? :)
