The demise of a balcony garden

When we first move into our new condo in the city, in 2005, we installed a Balinese Water Garden. The garden flourished and we added more plants, including edible one, herbs and bitter gourd. Jasmine and ylang-ylang too. The neat garden became a bushy tropical one.

Since then, Plants have to be cut and replaced. In 2008 we started staying longer and often for weeks and months at my late mother's house. Our balcony garden got neglected. Now all that is left are stones and a couple of hardy house plant.

The water pump has not been working for a long time, and I feel like taking the pond out of the way. My brother said, he will take it. Should we decided for another water feature, it will be just a small one. Or maybe we will have our aquarium out here. Hmm. This has to be a new beginning. Maybe more of an outdoor living space - more space as Digital loves to hang out - out here.

First we will do some cleanup, then we will think what is next.
