My balcony garden with Poinsettias, Mums and Coleus

My balcony is looking rather dressed these days with Chrysanthemums, Coleus and my favorite Poinsettias. Every year I take a trip to the nursery around November and buy some Poinsettias which I then flaunt on my balcony. The plants this year are rather small and two of them have lost a branch each so they are looking even smaller now. Poinsettia branches sadly are rather brittle!

I grow the Chrysanthemums on my rooftop terrace garden as it gets good sunlight unlike my lawn which is shaded by huge trees growing just outside the boundary wall of my house. Once the buds make an appearance, we take the pots down to the balcony where we can enjoy them even more.

And brought down to the balcony now.
