garden time

So it is that time of year again... time to rid the balcony of last year's sad and dead plant remnants and bring in the new! So the dilemma for this upcoming summer... what to plant that is going to be easy and ideally death proof. Baby is on the way (yes, only 2 weeks to go!) and I am pretty sure the garden is going to be slightly neglected at times... so I was in search of some easy plants. Result? A big box of succulents (which I have been told spread like wildfire and are hard to kill), some mint (not pictured, but I also hear, they are like weeds)... and some tomatoes (this one I hope will make it). I am hoping any update pics of these plants later in the coming months will still look green and not yellow or brown!

Sounds like your all set! Succulents are the easiest things in the world to care for, great choice!

And congrats on your pregnancy! That's so exciting.

That reminds me to go buy my Tom. plants :)

Oh, wishing you well with Baby :)

Cheers, T. :)

The succulents look so pretty and I have also heard that they are easy to grow, won't die immediately if someone forget to water them for a week and tend to be pest free.

Best wishes on the impending arrival of your second precious child. :)

The succulents are cool! I just bought some myself.
Mint is scary because it can totally take over.
