....my colourful Sweet Williams *sighs*
** click on any of the images to enlarge their view **
I bought them last year in October - they are the most resilient little plants you can imagine. Delivered to my door as plug plants from Jersey, they held out under tons of snow and are coming on so strong this year. Everytime I step on my balcony I get excited by the sheer beauty of them.
Even the spiders love them...can you spot him on this flower? I didn't notice him until I uploaded the picture...eeeeeeeeeeewwww
The Sweet William were a bargain, really - you get 70 plug plants including free delivery, it was SO worth it and I will definitely buy some more plants next month. Right now I have my eye on THIS one, as we are almost infested with slugs this year.
My balcony has come on great this year and I continuously add to the plant selection. The plan is to have a third of the balcony covered with plants, then we get some decking and some pebbles to cover the ugliness, which is the floor at the moment...I hate it so much, you see every little bit of bird poop, slug trail and soil on there. It always looks messy, no matter how often I clean it.
