Mihaela's Zen Jungle Balcony

My Great Outdoors

Name: Mihaela
Location: Iasi, Romania

I love to sit on my Moroccan poufs and see nothing of the busy world outside, just the mini-garden. When I bought the apartment, my tiny balcony was already enclosed with glass and had a built-in that provides much needed storage. It was perfect for the Romanian winter blizzards — not so perfect for my intentions. I wanted to create a zen garden, so I painted everything white and added wooden slabs and marbles.

I ended up with a vegetation jungle, because:

A. I love the look of savage English gardens.
B. I only have begun growing plants last year, so I've tried various things. There are scented herbs (basil, savory), some flowers and some decorative green plants.
C. There had to be many, many pots jammed on the shelf, so that my kitty cat won’t be able to climb up and destroy the pots.

Thanks Mihaela!
