Weekend Rooftop Blogging

I finally got a fence up again, so there’s no longer that feeling of being a zoo attraction for the mall patrons across the way. It’s a bit narrower than it used to be — the eco-renovation took away a good foot or two of depth. But OK.

I honestly don’t know how I lucked out with these tomatoes.

The beautiful spruce tree, which lived happily in a large pot for 10 years, did not survive the winter indoors. It has found a new life as a favorite perch, however, and at the moment I’m loathe to get rid of it, because the birds love to hop around on it.

    Love it, Marcellina! Yes, keep the spruce tree until you find its replacement – must keep the songbirds happy!

    Your terrace and bird perch are so charming! Congratulations on those ripening tomatoes – Bob will be so envious.

    @Astrid, I will! Sometimes find the pigeons trying to figure out how to untie the feedballs — at first I just had them on hooks but whole balls, net and all, kept vanishing. But today a family of fledgling sparrows was chirping away out there.
    @Carlisle, I hope I get to taste at least some of them! Which means they have to be ripe before next weekend… otherwise my plantsitters will have to enjoy them for me.
