As we race past July, I keep wondering where half the year has gone by. I stepped out into our balcony today and thought that my small garden has done pretty well this year. It is full of the succulents that I love and a few wildflowers along with some varieties of the common garden ivy. It is a source of great joy and inspiration for me. Here are a few photographs of my garden for you to enjoy!!

A combination of a few big planters with smaller ones works really well in a small space.

I have a lot of succulents, different varieties of cacti in my small garden. They are such resilient plants, gives you great joy, are really easy to look after and simply awesome to look at.
Growing your plants in a few brightly colored planters can make a huge difference…..
Stunning aren’t they???
Plants are a source of great inspiration……
Cacti can thrive well in harsh conditions. They require less care than other indoor houseplants…..
Ivy is another very easy to care for plant and does not require much care and attention.
The garden ivy looks really good in combination with other plants especially succulents….
The money plant is also a good addition to a low maintenance garden……
Using unused household items, like this blue tray is a great way of recycling and adding interest…..
The lovely succulents…..

On days when I don’t feel very upbeat, am down and broody I just need to step out into the balcony…….my plants are an instant mood booster, they make me smile again. I hope you enjoyed visiting my small balcony garden. You can view more images on my pinterest page http://uk.pinterest.com/nchakravarty/
