Ah, the wild outdoors. the place where you can encounter wildlife and smell the flowers. Oh, wait…that’s my balcony and hopefully no wildlife, other than birds and butterflies. At my balcony, you will find outdoors things for the city girl, like flowers, cute balcony furniture…you know, the things you can have in a garden, but without a big garden.

I have to confess that I am not a green thumb. It is a miracle if a few plants stay alive in my care. I often forget to water them, and honestly, I have not changed their soil for years. If my mother or sister comes by and want me to have flowers on my balcony, I gratefully accept their help and try to keep the potted plants alive.

Nothing beats having a nice morning coffee on the balcony on a summer morning though.
