This morning we made an early morning trip to the plant souk and were quite surprised to see that there were so many flowers to choose from. Last time we went it wasn't quite so colorful.
My husband bought a few trees to put outside his warehouse in the industrial area, the reality of which is very grim. Truth is, there are a lot of areas in this country that are filled with trash. People walk through it without a second thought which always boggles my mind. Why would you not want your surroundings to be clean and presentable? I started sweeping up trash which completely freaked out a couple of the workers. They insisted I stop, but I am a worker bee, always have been. I don't believe in waiting for others to do something when I am capable of doing it myself. (Which is why I don't have a maid at home when most people in this country do. I am an anomoly in that regard for sure.)
I bought moss roses and some rosemary but didn't even take pictures of them. I spent an hour and a half repotting and planting and sweeping and cleaning but had to call it quits because I literally started to feel nauseous from the heat.
My gardenia (I think that's what it is) has just started to bloom and there are still tomatoes popping out, too. Having plants in this environment isn't easy, but to me it is worth the effort. And honestly, what would Jingles do if she didn't have a balcony to explore, pots to sit in and a place to relax?
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
