The weather is turning towards a warm fall, and the plants are putting out new leaves and new fruit every day. The weather and the growth don't seem to agree at all. I'm glad they're happy!
Even through a touch-and-go week, the plants are blooming up happily! The curious cactus has put up a new set of leaves, while the wildflowers treat everything like a competitor for sun.
All the flowers are finally showing life! The second heat wave seems to be agreeing with them, and they're coming up... well, not roses. A bunch of other things instead! Even the ever-dominant thyme is flowering. There's plenty of new leaves to share.
The air's heating up out here, jumping up to about 90F on some days. It's not quite where it will be once we're up into July and August, but for now the garden is having a happy time of it. They hadn't quite gotten along with the cold, strong winds of late winter. Now they're having a wonderful time sunning and getting a green tan.
Memorial Day is just around the corner! That means summer is coming up fast. The garden is blooming and the leaves are... greening? Everywhere I turn, it seems like there's a little less room for me on the balcony. The plants are taking over.
The thyme is still producing enough leaves to feed a family, and the tomato is now the largest plant on my balcony. Looks like the watering problems of last year have been solved, and the plants are showing their happiness.
We're a few weeks into Spring, and nature doesn't show any signs of stopping. The grass is greener on the other side, on this side, really on any side that has grass.
Spring has really taken over for the balcony plants. Every plant is growing, and most have nearly doubled in fluffy foliage. I can't help but feel delighted every time I step outside.
Spring is finally showing itself in the form of many happy plants! The olives are starting to bud up, the Ginkgo has finally awoken from winter, and the cress won't stop flowering!
Spring has finally sprung in the garden, and everything is getting growing. Most of the seedlings have been transplanted to their long-term homes (at least until they end up in the kitchen...). Check out the post to see how all the plants are getting along!
