Balcony Life

DSCN3597

Summer seems to be back on again. It was on from Easter and a week after, then off again (my aunt emailed me pictures of snow only a few days ago, she lives closer to the east coast but roughly the same latitude); but this afternoon I was glad to have my new parasols up on the balcony!  My old ones were all different from each other; yesterday I bought three new ones all of the same kind, and besides looking neater I hope they will give me as well as my plants better protection from the afternoon heat on really sunny days.

I also got some new plants today.

And my clematis survived the harsh winter and is now in bloom.

  2. The idea of a parasol on Lewis made me laugh! I love Clematis.

  3. @GB: They'd soon be gone with the wind I suppose? ;) I've had my share of Mary Poppins problems here too actually, so have to watch out... I don't leave them up or even out in every kind of weather.
