When I first moved here five years back, the homes in front were bare.Their rooftops had a few plants but balconies which faced me made me sigh.Why didn’t they have a few green plants to grace them?
My hubby insisted there were practical reasons, like letting clothes get sun-dried(that’s more eco-friendly and healthier option than a drier ).But those beautiful sunny balconies lying bare, made my brain go into overdrive.I used to stare at them and imagine how pretty they would look with different plants peeping here and there.
Guess what? The Gods were listening.Though they don’t have a balcony garden, now they have a two story high climber which is bursting with beautiful pink flowers,.They are a pleasure to behold, on hot sultry summer afternoons.My green balcony is always restful, but now I peep outside from between the leaves of my Chikoo tree to see the climbing beauty just across the street.It’s called Madhabilata in Bengali.
Sharing the balcony views from indoor. The first one faces south and the second one faces north (more or less). When the late afternoon sun filters through the green leaves they make me happy.
Enjoy the Garden images from my collection:
When I see a hummingbird dancing from one branch to another, a butterfly sitting on my flowers, a sparrow trying to eat my chikoo.I know it’s all good. Life is supposed to be this way. When you find what you are seeking, things just fit. When they don’t fit, it’s not meant to be. Plants animals, humans and nature needs to live in harmony. That will create the right environment for health, wellness, and prosperity.
