It’s that time of year.
Summer. Lemonade. Iced Coffee. Beaches. GARDENING.
Ever since my first apartment with a deck (and room to grow stuff) in university, I’ve loved the idea of a patio garden.
Circa 2007, Halifax Nova Scotia
So naturally, last year and this year, I have enjoyed transforming the balcony of my current apartment into a flowery, foliage haven and because I adore you all, I thought I’d share some snapshots of its cuteness.
Read: you are all invited for wine on it this summer. All of you. All of the internetz.
I can tell you that the two larger bushes are peonies. And I’m so excited for them to bloom because next to lilies – peonies are my favourite. Blair Waldorf and I have that in common.
Sigh. Those two.
Anyway. What was this post about? Right. FLOWERS. Not the life of the Upper East Siders.
Only items left to purchase are a cute little patio tomato plant and some of my own herbs (read: mint for mojitos).
What are your favorite must-have flowers and plants for your balcony or garden? And are your pets growing their own contraband? These are things we should talk about.

Authors Note: my cat is not, in fact, growing contraband although if you saw her on cat nip, which is what I am growing on her behalf, you would deem it feline contraband without question. So please, no one report us to the DEA.
