Once upon a Wednesday | Balcony Gardening


One of my annual rituals in recent years has been to bring our balconies to life with pots and baskets of assorted florals. But this year, time ran away with me and I just didn't get chance.

I missed the riot of colour outside our windows during the recent warm weather so uncharacteristic of UK Summer's of late. Pots and baskets are thirsty little blighters so I have taken some comfort in not having to carry my water can a copious amount of times each day to satisfy their thirst or do the daily dead-head routine and weekly feeding. It all takes time, y'know!

But despite the effort (because you only get out of something, what you put in, right?), next year I'll be there at the nursery again, over zealously picking my lot because I know just how pretty they're going to bloom under my tender, loving care.
