I grew up in a small town in south
, where water was scarce and temperatures soared most of the time. My parents being avid gardeners, even in such harsh conditions managed to grow flowers and fruits. They recycled water used for washing clothes and such, to spare water for their plants. Their love for plants has surely rubbed off on me. I am not as good as them in keeping my plants alive but I try. India
A friend was throwing away the planter box and I brought it home and reused it. The shell hanging is so cute and is hand made by a couple who are our friends. They handpicked those shells on their travel to
and I really appreciate this gift. Mexico
All these years in
, mostly we were in homes with shaded balconies so I could only grow ferns and other plants that needed very less sunlight. Last year when we were moving again, I was very particular in moving to a house with a small backyard/patio and also a house that got lots of sunlight. The best part of the house now is all the sunlight that comes streaming in the morning into my kitchen and living room ! California
I spray painted a mirror (which needed some TLC) I found on clearance. With the husband’s help we hung it in the garden to add a pop of color.
