Better Balcony

While out with my father on Sunday, I picked up a few plants to help flesh out my balcony planters.

I learned my lesson that my smaller, cast iron planter doesn’t work for perennials. The winter was just too harsh. So that will be annuals only now.

And I am going to try perennials in one of my big planters, as it should be better insulated– maybe.

Anyway- here are the results:

Purple and white– the middle plant blooms white, and the low plants in front are a purply sweet potato vine thing.

Bowl of mini petunias on my cafe table. I always like to have a bowl of petunias around; every year I imagine it saying “Oh no, not again.”

Burgundy and reddish-pink day lilies, with some sort of pink drapey-viney flower for show.

And my herb planter. This year I have rosemary, 2 kinds of basil, lavender, and thyme.

Of all my balcony things, the herb planter seems to do best. Well, that and the petunias.

    day lillies are edible…no flavor, but pretty in a salad

  7. I love the H2G2 reference. You need some whale bits laying around though. Just for added effect.
