Gardening makes me happy. The bad thing is that because I live in a condo, my gardening space is fairly limited.  But that doesn't stop me from adding some color. It's all about the pretty flowers.

And because the weather was so beautiful out I finished planting the flowers on my balcony today.

Every year I stick with the petunias and vinca vines. This year I threw a spike in there for some height.

Eventually they will get split up. I'll probably put the white container on the little table I have. I LOVE the little blue flowers. I have no idea what they are but I had to have them. Same with the red gerber daisies. I'm the worst. I just get distracted by the pretty and buy them with no real plan. 

This might be my favorite. Pink gerber daisies and little blue flowers. (We'll see how long it lasts before I find a way to kill it.)

I also made yet another run to the nursery for flowers for the condo building. I did the planters today before I ran out of potting soil yet again. I'll have to make yet another trip to the nursery tomorrow so I can finish planting this stuff before it all dies.

I love long relaxing holiday weekends.

So pretty Gatzy!. The pink gerbers and the little blue flowers are my favourite too. We don't have anything on our balcony - it's a shared entrance for the entire floor and so we can't block it - but I might look for something besides the my rubber plant for inside. Because flowers are so pretty :-)

I need a flower icon...

I'm lucky. I have a little space on my balcony and I do the pots (urns) by the entrance of our building. There's also a tiny patch by the bushes outside where I plant a bunch of petunas because they tend to hold up pretty well there.

Just enough gardening for me to not hate it when it gets really hot out and they require multiple waterings a day to survive.
