    Default my balcony from left to right (not the best pics tho...)

    ok, so i finally broke down and paid for a flik account so i have lots of space for pictures... i've never really tried to do a full sweep of my growing space so i thought i would give it a go today... i was a bit busy and didnt do the best job with the pics (im blaming poor light conditions) ...so here i go... i guess i'll add them in batches... only the orchids... yall feel free to pass judgement on some of my highly unorthodox and irresponsible plantings...

    That's a lovely and impressive orchid jungle you have going on out there on your balcony. You barely can see your neighbors, I'll bet you feel like you're somewhere else when you're out then instead of in a city. I'm presuming there is also room for you on the balacony? It's a great retreat. - martha
