... because of dreamy gardens

There are many little gardens near the buildings of the quite, off-main routes, streets of Tel Aviv. Parking spots - a great need in the crowded city - are taking their place more and more in the recent years, but lots of gardens are still there, giving the street an ambiance of an old neighborhood, almost of a village.
I imagine that it's the persistence and the care of one of the building's residents that keeps the gardens going on. And I'm grateful to these people who keep the streets of the city more appeasing for us all.
Sometimes it's a group of stone figurettes, sometimes a rose bush, and sometimes a collection of random antiques, like in this little garden on De Haas street. I think I would like to live in a building with an interesting dreamy garden like this...

Yes, it's a pleasure to walk on streets with such attractions along the way. It's kind of relaxing and inspiring to stop by.
Thanks for sharing your love for Tel-Aviv. It's interesting to know bits of the place.
