I combined the photo's of my vintage finds with photo's taken at De Dakakker, a rooftop garden in Rotterdam city centre. So you actually get two post in one :-)
You enter the garden through the Schieblock building. Walking the stairs to the top floor is quite a climb, but worth it. On your way up, the building itself and the old photographs and prints catch your eye. The rooftop garden is fun. At De Dakakker they grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. My daughter told me they have a long waiting list of people who would like to do volunteer work. If I did not have the allotment, I would be interested too.
The fruit and veg all look immaculate! I wonder if they have any snails up on the roof? Forgot to ask, ha. ha....:-). You can even have tea or coffee there. It's quite fun! The view of the city centre really good!
By the way, there is a great shop on the ground floor of the Schieblock building too, called Groos, a concept store selling only products by Rotterdam designers.
Well, that's it for now. I think I will take you to my garden next time, to show you some photo's of a party I had for 21 girls. After that.....holiday!!
Hope it's sunny wherever you are! It is in Rotterdam :-)
