Green Thumb Decor - Tara (part 2)

You've seen part 1.... now see the best part of Tara's balcony... This is creativity at its best...
One day, just like that I decided to clean up the balcony and use things lying around there to create a nice look. The shells, the pots and the abandoned ironing table, the plastic aquarium, pebbles etc..
Unemployment is capitalism's way of getting you to plant a garden. ~Orson Scott Card :-) this turned out to be true in my case
Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity. ~Lindley Karstens
herb corner with a climbing plant in the corner... there is lot of aloe in my garden, thanks to a kind blogger friend who gifted it to me while moving to another continent. there is mint that I grew from the stick stems out of the bunch i got from supermarket and there is a whole lot of other stuff there.
Are you inspired to send in your pics.. The green thumb series is open till 30th April. Do a post on your blog and link in... at my party!! or simply email pics to torresp27@hotmail.com

  10. All your lovely notes made my morning! I am so happy my little corner is being liked and appreciated :)
    Thank you all... did you notice the dove with no tail feathers? these are my regular guests.. They visit the balcony not only to eat and play in water but to just chillax, sit, walk around and at times impressing their mates.. Its a delightful sight really.
