Small paradise in a world of concrete

Thanks to the generosity and guidance of friends, my months-long hope of having some plants at home has been realised.

I don’t pretend to know anything about raising plants, but I’m hoping to be able to keep these plants alive, and ultimately get some herbs growing so that I can cook with them.

At the moment, I’m reading warning labels on things – potting mix contains micro-organisms: do not inhale dust – but mostly I’ve just lined up everything along the north wall of this west-facing balcony, and I’m watching to make sure everything stays green.

If the title sounds familiar, it’s from a song by the Waifs.
