I’ve been enjoying container gardening on my balcony. Initially I had envisioned growing all kinds of useful yummies – basil, rosemary, tomatoes, maybe some berries or cucumbers or peppers. But as it turns out, I’m a sucker for flowers. So instead I’ve started what I’ve always dreamed of having – a rose garden!
Here are some pics. First, the whole garden (5 plants total). Next, a closeup of the window box, with a little basil pot hidden between the two flowering plants. I love looking up as I walk home and seeing these colorful flowers hanging from my balcony. Then, a brief journey through the life of my pink rose (I just bought the second one today), and finally, proof that I did the work myself – dirty gloves! They make me feel like a real gardener. 🙂
