plants on houseboat

Probably one of the biggest things a houseboat inhabitant misses about living on land is having a garden.  As I wandered around Amsterdam last April, I noticed that almost every boat had at least a little pot of daffodils or herbs growing on deck, and some folks got very creative and even had a few small trees scattered about.

Another thing I noticed is that the decks tended to be very cluttered, which made it a challenge to get a pleasing image of a boat in its entirety.

I guess it’s those two factors that make me enjoy the simplicity of this composition all the more.
