Our balcony garden

Hi lovelies πŸŒ»πŸŒ΅πŸŒΊπŸ“

So I thought I would update you on our little urbangarden. Because now everything has starting to get really big! Let’s take a look!

Here we have two of our potts with flowers and they really have grown up and like our sunny balcony.

Under those two we have another one with flowers. I don’t know their English names, so I am sorry for not writing them.

Under that one whe have a mixed pot with grass and flowers. Next left to it we have our old chili plant and some palate leafy greens.

Here we have our third and fourth potts with flowers. It was not meant to be this much flowers this year, but the bees are happy!

Under those we have potted strawberries and wild strawberries.

Here is potato, tomato and chilies in a Paul potato next to it vi have sugarbeans.

Tomatoes and tomatoes and tomatoes….

We also have herbs but I didn’t take a picture of them because they stand in our little green house.

So what do you think? Do you grow anything?

A witch with purple hair

Hello my cactuses

This weekend was another family weekend with my side of the family. My little baby cousin Maja (she is not so little anymore she is 15) was about to get her in Swedish we call it “konfirmation”, i think it’s called confirmation in english (but I’m really not sure), so we went to Nybro for the weekend and we were about to babysit my (baby brother who is 13 but has autism).
We really checked the weather report for this trip and it was going to be about 30 celsius warm, but it was poring rain and just 16 celsius warm, so what I wore was a bit cold, but I felt so freaking casual fancy in it AND really loved showing of my curves.

I really don’t wear this type of ribbon-skirts, because I felt so un me in them, but when I saw this I just said “FUCK IT!, I love it and I’m going to rock it!” and that’s what I did! Felt so proud of myself!
The skirt is from Lindex and is in stores now, I bought in a 2xl and it is very true to size!

But now there is something we need to chat about!
Why is it that the generation that is our parents and older feels free to say hurtful things about, for exampel my purple hair? I really Love it and that is why i keep coloring it purple. But for some reason, PEOPLE keep calling me a witch with purple hair. So now I’m embracing it.
Enough is ENOUGH!

Did you know witches are only girls and women, so GIRL POWER!!! They are believed to be magic (most of them for good and medicinal use), they had to believe in them self (very very much, because no one else did) and didn’t care about what people thought about them. So as long as my hair is purple the witch is here to stay!
Sorry, people who hates my hair!

But now to something completely different and that is some new cactuses. Yes we bought new babies to the collection of stinglynes.

And that was our weekend!

Urbangarden

Hello lovelies 🌺

While I am feeling a bit down with a fever and a cold, I thought I would update you on some things, like our little urbangarden and some sewing I’ve been doing lately.

So we live in, what we say in Sweden, a one bedroom apartment with a balcony and both me and Anton loves plants so it’s was an easy choice when we decided to grow our own vegetables and potatoes. We found a smart pot on kickstarter called Paul potato that we are growing potatoes, chilis and tomatoes in.

It has holes in the bottoms of each pot so the water can slip through and is perfect for balcony and small gardens like urbangardens.

We also grow strawberries and wild strawberries, cucumbers, herbs, more tomatoes, peas and more chili. And ofcourse we have a bit of flowers as well…

All of my cactuses have also moved out, but I didn’t take a picture of them, why? I really don’t know…

What you don’t see here is our greenhouse, where the cucumber and herbs are living. But this is our little urbangarden and we have more coming πŸŒΊπŸŒΏπŸ…πŸŒΈ
