balcony gardening...


A few months ago as I was passing through a nursery, on an impulse, I bought a chilli sapling......

I watered it everyday I wanted to see if I had a green finger......and lo! I saw little leaves peeping ..I was so happy.....

I went out and brought 5 containers ......and some more saplings......

3 flowering plants..., mint and curry leaves.....

now, they all seem happy to be living in my home........ Ive brought manure and fertilizer........

I wake up and the first thing I do is look at my plantlings.......they smile at me.....

a few days ago, my neighbor gave me a cutting of bougainvillea....beautiful pink flowers....

I put it up ....and hope that it becomes thick foliage

I learned that she too is an enthusiast.....

nowadays we spend hours discussing how we can make our balcony interesting.......
wow! never thought i would be a gardener..
