My balcony in May
Still a work in progress but looking pretty good.

I was given some PussyWillow cuttings a couple of weeks ago. I have them in a container of water on my table. They are so beautiful! I noticed tonight that they have roots. \O/ I am going to plant them in a pot and hope they grow. I am not sure they will grow confined to a pot, they are kinda freedom lovin plants. But I am going to try to encourage them to be happy on my little balcony.
I love PussyWillows. (I really am a crazy cat lady, I even like furry plants.) When I was a kid we had lots of bushes growing in our yard. It seems everybody had some and they also grew wild along the roads and in the parks and fields. I don’t see them here very often, I think it is a bit hot for them.
My daisy-like plants and snapdragons are starting to get little green leaves. So exciting to see them. Hopefully, any late frost will not hurt them.
When I was cleaning my balcony off the other day, pigeons are a problem, ugh, I started making plans for planting. Won’t be long and I will get my hands in the dirt and have some fun. I sometimes think it would be nice to have an actual yard–but then I come to my senses and realize a yard would be work. A balcony of pots and planters of flowers is easy and fun.
Today, I am ready to put away sweaters and shoes and get into tee shirts and sandals and sit in the sun and watch life begin anew.
