making the most of the sunshine
The view from my office window is definitely a roof top view! It all looks a little grey but it is very quiet, with all sorts of birds flying around and bathing in the rooftop puddles, and it's nice to have outside space...even if it is mostly used to walk to and from the Big Bin in the alley!!John decided that today was the day to re-use this old window box & planter that had been on the roof since I got here (we assume it was left by the previous occupiers, the only plants within were weeds) We kept one original grass/weed because the flowers are pretty and we chose some little flowering plants from the local green grocer to provide some colour, once the flowers all come out. it's nice to have some greenery to look at and look after ... the nosey seagulls made me laugh...they came to have a little look, but there's nothing for them to eat so they soon got bored!!
