cactus garden

Window boxes on a ground floor flat in Holon, a city to the south of Tel Aviv. Instead of glass windows, the apartment has louvred plastic blinds; as well as being able to open and close the blinds themselves you can also open the entire window. This is almost ubiquitous, since the blinds keep out the harsh sunlight and the heat, but the windows can be opened in the evenings to let in the cooler (well, it’s all relative) air.
