DEADP roof garden, Cape Town

The roof garden of the Western Cape’s environment department.

If I’ve ever been in a roof garden, a proper, up-in-the-air garden out on an open roof, well, I can’t remember it. Not since seeing this one which, I must add, is fuller and livelier than the above photo (which represents the succulent Karoo biome) suggests.

So, without further ado, more photos of the roof garden in the Cape Town city centre, starting with what it looks like from a higher building nearby, which is how I first spotted it.
