How was your weekend dear friends, mine was super hectic with lots of work assignments in hand and my son’s studies, I didn’t even realize it was Monday again. I did so many things in the past few months, some DIY projects, paintings, and a few more exciting things. I added some elements to my balcony garden last month and a post about it has been lying in draft since then. My husband is a great support, because of him I was able to meet all the deadlines and get time to publish this post.
Sharing some tips and images of my garden with you. A corner in my garden was looking a little dull and I wanted to cheer it up without spending much time.
First, have a look at how it was before. For a long time, the arrangement has been like this and I got bored of looking at it. I wanted to rearrange and add something.
This is what I did..
I am quite happy with the look (at least for a few months). Now if you want to create this look in your garden, follow these easy and simple steps:
1. Take a clay/plastic plate. Plate because you will place Buddha on it.
2. Put soil and manure on the plate.
3. Sow seeds or if you have saplings you can plant them (I did both). Plant only on one side of the plate, as on the other side you will place Buddha.
4. Place the Buddha figure on the plate. Club together pots of the same size and place the plate in the center (where you see the void).
5. You can place small colorful pots on the edges of two adjoining pots, like I did. I placed an orange watering can and coconut planter too.
6. Arrange the pots in a way that all the taller plants should be on the back side and smaller ones and creepers should be in front.
Here is a closer look at the corner…
The plants I planted on the plate are very lovely. They are almost in five shades. I don’t know the name of this plant, if any of you are aware of what this plant is called, please tell me the name.
I always wanted a Zen corner in my garden, so that I could spend my evenings there doing some creative work or writing a blog post. Now I love looking at this corner, it’s serene!! Sometimes I place different flowers on the Buddha figure I enjoy the peaceful moments that I spend there 🙂
