Container Gardening

"Laying out grounds may be considered a liberal art, in some sort like poetry and painting."


Inspired by this family's accomplishments , I have begun my own "container" garden on my small roof deck. Planting edibles along with flowers, I love the beauty of the tiny green shoots pushing through the earth.

It's a small start , interrupted by my time away, but it is an idea that I hope to cultivate.


  1. "Interrupted" by your time away ... Ah! If all interruptions were for stays in France!

  2. Nice. I have a container garden on my balcony as well. Basically I am growing a salad.

  3. When are you coming to France? I'll probably make people cringe with this remark but I'm really missing England at the mo ... the grass is always greener...

  4. Yes, Lorenzo, I am very fortunate, I know.

    Ms Smart ... me too! lol.. I am growing a salad.

    Deborah, I will be in France in early June & I can't wait , but I totally know the feeling of dreaming of some place else.

    Thanks for all your great comments.

  5. Lovely Sally. I think there should be a law to say if you have a garden space you must grow some veg. We have become very decadent with flowers:))))
