A lot of plants are dying off or back in autumn, but you can plant stuff too! A couple of weeks ago, my girls and I got busy on the balcony, planting some bulbs in pots. We’ve got iris, hyacinth and crocus. I haven’t planted bulbs since I was a kid, and I’m excited for them to come up!
Bulbs don’t make for very exciting photos, however, so I’ve decided to take you on a tour of my balcony garden too.
I mainly grow culinary and medicinal herbs up here, but there are a few ornamental ones, like this coleus my neighbour gave me because I asked him the Greek name as I was passing his house! I’ve propagated three baby ones from it too, so we have coleus galore!
A lot of the pots contain things we can add to food.
And if you’ve read my earlier posts, you’ll have met the flowering basil before.
There are also plants that I use for tea and skincare.
We’re also lucky enough to have an actual garden. One post, I’ll take you on a tour of that too!
I know a lot of folks are gearing up for the winter holidays in the Northern Hemisphere, but I’m still in Autumn Mode here in Greece. Next week, I’ll be posting about Autumn + the Enchantress before I dive into the winter season. I hope you’ll join me again!
