I love gardening and think that plants can really be healing and uplift your spirits. We live in a rented apartment and its on the 7th floor so having a full fledged garden is a bit of a challenge. But the bright side of it is that we have a balcony and as they say where there is a will there is a way!!! I mostly have cacti and succulents growing in small pots as they are really resilient and easy to look after. Here are a few images to inspire you to start your own small garden!!!
