So I decided last year that I should grow a flowering vine on my balcony railing, but I never did it. This year, I’m a new and improved gardener! I’ve got goals and 150 square feet of gardening space, a veritable force of nature! Yeah, whatever.

I’m hoping these are the ‘Heavenly Blue’ variety–Kris and Judy planted several varieties last year with pink, white and blue flowers, so we don’t really know what these are. I did feel a bit like a 2nd grader bringing home my plastic cup with seedlings, though! Here’s what I’m hoping it will look like :
As you can see, I have a long way to go, but I’m on a Heavenly Blue Mission, so stay tuned. The people standing at the bus stop below my balcony will love me.
