One of these days I am hoping to get some pics taken of the apartment and then I will give you a tour of the new (well sort of) place. Just need to get my mind and time going at the same time - I always think of it at night -and of course it will be better to take pictures during the day.
Okay, this is view is on the east side of the balcony - looking south - kind of - not really sure of the accuracy of the north-south line. But you can see the gazebo Aymn had built, one of these years we are hoping that the bouganvilla, jasmine and other plants will cover it and make a nice shaded area.
This view is along the south side of the balcony - notice the tall building on the right side of the balcony wall - well it was 18 floors high - but a new governor came in and is enforcing the building code that no buildings can be higher than 11 floors, and he is not open to bribes - so that building had to have seven floors taken off - needless to say the governor is not in favour with all the builders - they arelosing money. In the foreground is the rose garden - there are 50 little rose bushes planted, quite a sight when they are blooming - a real disaster for weeding though.
Another view of the gazebo - to the left at the corner is one of the norfolk island pine trees that Aymn bought for me after I noticed them at a 'garden centre' and commented how much I liked them. He came home with two of them a few days later.
One of my favourite plants - love the two colours on one bush - unfortunately the plant is quite brittle and the winds destroyed both of them - will get two more - and stake them up so the wind does not knock them about so much - will also make sure they are planted much deeper.
And of course a picture of my favourite gardener, he spends a lot of time looking after his babies, in this picture he is washing down the balcony, needless to say I am quite happy to leave this chore to him - only fair as it was his bright idea to have such an elaborate garden.
