A squash plant thriving in a public wooden structure intended to support a young tree. Mainzer Straße was recently dug up to repair water pipes below; this very young tree appears to have been planted after the street was restored. So it, and the structure supporting it, are rather new arrivals on the block.

Not all urban plants sprout up uninvited on the mean sidewalks of the city. Indeed, in Berlin, planting the balcony is a spring ritual for many. Those without balconies, like myself, have adopted bits of land in community gardens. It’s still too early for many plants to be planted outdoors, but seedlings are being started in apartments around the city.
I have to say it again, spring moves fast!
These are photos I took less than four weeks ago and forgot to post until now. What at the time were two-leaved sprouts in a tiny greenhouse on Anke’s balcony have since been transplanted and are flourishing in our community garden.
