What started off as laziness became a fascination with nature in a local ecosystem. In our balcony, we have pots of red Hibiscus framing the small space. It's been here for nearly three years until last summer it was furiously attacked by tiny little white flies. I had to trim all the trees down to a single stalk removing every leaf. Miraculously, this seems to have worked and new leaves are starting to unravel. Two weeks ago, I noticed small weeds growing in the pots. What struck me was the variety of the flora that found its way to our first floor. I kept putting off removing them until a 'proper' gardening afternoon. The weather has been too nice and I found myself playing with my kids instead of tending to the plants.
