Memories: A roof garden

Spurned on by Barnaby's blog post about his gorgeous garden
I was prompted to share my own little green paradise.

I don't have a yard. at. all.

So, this past summer, I took to trying to put one in milkcrates atop the pizza parlour. There was a lot of wind and too close with the planting so all the plants were interestingly dwarfed. I had six inch tall delphiniums with weensy little flowers on them. I'm not sure I'll be trying again next year. Getting a plot in one of the urban community gardens is more likely...

Is it legal to dangle hanging planting from a fire escape?

Barnaby said...
