Everyone who loves or lives in Istanbul knows how precious our green spaces are. We are lucky enough to have one close to us that is fun to visit even on the coldest days: the city garden right inside Salt Beyoğlu. Salt is an inspirational art space right on Istiklal Street and has always been a great place to pop into with the kids. The garden is a glassed area on the fourth floor of a beautifully restored building. Pots of herbs and prettily labelled vegetables provide a little haven on one of the busiest streets in a chaotic city. Right next door is a wonderful book shop perfect for browsing.
And here are some pictures of a sweet growing friendship that this garden has nurtured.
These pictures are part of my Life in Loud project and I would love you to go and have a look at some stunning shots from the woman behind Little White Feather Photography.
