YEY! It’s officially spring, and that means our apartment becomes bigger, since the balcony becomes an extra room. Love having breakfast and dinner here! But before I can enjoy sitting here a balcony makeover was necessary. Therefore my boyfriend and I went to buy plants the other day.
Yes, as I said. It needed a makeover, for sure. The plants were dead and LONG gone! I’m not that big of a fan of the yellow wall, and therefore wanted some kind of plats that covered it. Besides that plant, the others needed to be pretty short, since it tend to be windy here. Last year we bought a tree, which turned out to be a bad idea, since it couldn’t survive because of the wind.
Hopefully this little fellow will grow and cover the wall! Really wanted somethine that doesn’t need much care, and I think this kiddo will be easy to raise!
And right now, while I’m writing this, I’m sitting here, with this view and I’m really happy about the result 🙂 The pink flowers smells SO good! Will keep you updated about how the ivy grows and HOPEFULLY it will, in a couple of months, be a green wall! Not sure how fast they grow though? Or if they can grow that big with that small pot? I’m a newbie when it comes to this, but excited to learn! 🙂
