I agree completely BBB Becky.

For years I grew natives in pots because I didn't own any land. Keep up the good work and inspiration to others.

You're an inspiration to other visitors to this forum who also live in condos or apartments or have limited gardening space.

Seeing the photos of your balacony jungle gives others ideas for starting their own balcony jungles, or even just a few potted tomatoes.

Aww. You are so sweet.

We learn from what you share with us, too. Your photography is amazing. I'm sure visitors with no land are inspired to garden with what they have, thanks to you.

What's new on my balcony, you ask? Wellllllll,
  • my little bitsy patio tomatoes crack open before they get red
  • the trumpet vine is all over the place spreading its mildew
  • most things aren't flowering anymore
  • I've pulled out and tossed half of what I planted
  • including three hanging baskets
  • what's left IS in a jungle state
  • flowering plants include: red salvia, little white flowers, little pink flowers, reddish coral trumpet like flowers (not from the vine), small yellow pansies
  • and spidey 1 is surviving but hasn't made another egg sac, yet
I do enjoy sitting out there watching for birdies, bunnies and waiting to see a hummer visit my flowers

WOW
This is a nice addition to a porch or home.

It's a member of the Datura family-Angels Trumpet, comes in a multitude of colors and is VERY fragrant..
They're EASY to grow and just LOOK at the blooms it's given me!

I've seen one root itself into a green house right through its pot and on into the ground...That one grew so large you could stand under it! All those beautiful blossoms hanging right in your face, nose sniffing level ...Ahhhhhh
