With summer finally arriving in my city, I see flowers blooming in everyone else’s balcony. Since my family arrived here last year in December, it wasn’t a good time to start gardening.
In the month of March, we decided to have some plants in our balcony. So we got a stem cutting of a rose plant and planted it in a pot. In the United States, we can’t use the soil from the fields or near by areas like we usually do in India. Here we have to buy pot mix soil that is a special soil used to grow plants in gardens or balconies.
We also sow some morning glory seeds in a pot. Until May, nothing showed up in both the pots. In the first week of May, thee was three seedlings in the morning glory pot and to our surprise the seedlings were grow really fast. Finally, yesterday we had three gorgeous flowers.
My kids were so happy to see the flowers. We were happy too. After all flowers don’t just bloom, they also bring happiness on our face. Isn’t it? In this post, I am sharing pictures of the flowers that are adding to the beauty of my balcony.
Now I also have a holy basil plant in my balcony that my husband brought from Indian store. So, in totality I have three pots in my balcony.
The slowest growing plant is the rose stem. It showed up few leaflets last week only. It was so much exciting to watch those little cuties opening up and growing that I clicked few pictures.
I will keep posting about my little rose plant, which is still very small to be called as a plant. I think it will take months for a bud to show up. For the first time I am so excited and waiting patiently for my rose plant to grow.
These days, I learned that gardening is also therapeutic. It’s good to take care of plants and see them growing. We grow with them and enjoy looking at them, caring for them everyday.
