I live in Kuwait which is basically a concrete jungle built in the desert.
While I love the outdoors and nature, conditions here are not always conducive to outdoor living. Because of that, I sometimes feel like a caged bird.
While many have luscious gardens and places to roam, I am ever so thankful for the two balconies that we have. One is off our tv room and one is off our bedroom.
Yes, they can be hard to maintain when those nasty dust storms surface.
But at least when I look out my windows, I see green. And pink! Moss roses grow beautifully in this climate.
As winter arrives at your doorstep, our weather is just beginning to change. It is beginning to feel a bit like Fall. A time to reap the benefits of planting. And for that I am truly grateful!
I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex.
