Before and after - #501

Toddled off to the Landesgartenschau in Bingen with Ms jb, Helen and Mr Helen yesterday evening (cut-price tickets as from 5pm...)

It's an absolute treat.

Apart from some stunningly designed plantings, the landscape architecture is mind-blowing.

Especially when you think of what they started with - derelict industrial wasteland stuck between the main railway line on the west bank of the Rhine and the river itself.

They've got a series of virtual picture frames set up at intervals along the length (3 km) of the park - the "Before" image positioned immediately below an aperture for the "After" view.

Expect a glut of horticultural images for the immediate future...
