Right now, my garden consists of this Reverse-Bloom Flower Washcloth from Weekend Knitting (Melanie Falick). Made from Mission Falls cotton in a deep pink color. Yep, that's my only garden because we are dealing with this:
Our building sent a note end of May saying that all terrace furniture must be off by May 31 so that terrace maitenance could take place. Over the summer. 6-8 weeks. More like 3-4 months. Or more. They even put a board over our door! With square footage being such a big deal in this city, we are very irritated that we are paying for space we can't use during the prime summer season. Yah yah yah, the terrace may be better after the work, but shouldn't we be compensated somewhere? Harumph. Not to mention that noise is unbelievably loud. It's a cheap building built in the late '60's and they didn't insulate the floors very well so basically you can hear a pen drop. (Seriously!) Imagine a jackhammer.
So why do we live here? Well, the terrace! It's nestled right in the trees and there is a water fountain below. It feels like a tree house. One more year or so and we hope to buy a place. With a huge *bleepin* terrace.
