Our summer garden is in full glory right now! After finals were over I spent some play money on our balcony garden, resulting in many fuchsia colored inpatients, ivy starters, and a fantastic new hydrangea! A few weekends ago Grant bought us some marvelous vine monsters from the Farmer's Market which add some wonderful vertically to our outdoor space.
Oh!!! Guess what??!! Since it is summer, our balcony - in the northeastern corner, gets late afternoon sun! Can you believe it! Grant has given me the 'A-OK' to experiment with some herbs in a window box that would get the benefit of summer sun for most of the day! I feel like that little bitty patch of sun if just for me and I cannot wait to enjoy it!
