balcony season

 Yesterday before the evening thunderstorms rolled over, I finished sweeping the balcony and scrubbing down the grubby house siding and the table and chairs, and transplanting, trimming and situating new and old plants.  It felt very satisfying, and I am happy to say that it is now officially balcony season chez Maria!  I took these pictures tonight before sitting down to eat my dinner.  As nice as winter can be, I am very glad spring is here.


  1. Hello Maria,
    Just discovered your blog while looking for a rather similarly titled one, a woman in Wales, UK, who contacted me about my own Edward Thomas blog,
    Love your pictures and sense of calm reflection. Good to find so many links across the world.

    1. Hi Margaret,
      I'm so honored that you took the time to write, and am touched by the connection Edward Thomas made for us, across time and all the way across the ocean. I have enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to continuing to follow it. Thank you for sharing your link.
