Windowsill Garden

Hello lovelies!

One thing I was worried about when moving to our city apartment was losing my garden. I've always had some kind of yard wherever I have rented and I love having pots of herbs and flowers.

Happy Geraniums

Luckily this old building has wide windowsills and I've put together a few plants that like small pots (by raiding my Mum's garden for off cuts).

I have quite a few geraniums and they have lots of flowers which is awesome. I've got mint going too, although it's struggling a bit. Does anyone have any mint growing tips for me? It's necessary to feed my cocktail addiction so quite important..

Coffee Cup Succulent

And of course succulents are almost too easy to grow in pots. I have some in old china cups and jugs and a lovely friend of mine put some in little colourful ramekins for me too. They look fantastic in the kitchen!

Ramekin Garden!

So tell me, do you have a windowsill garden? If so, what plants have worked for you? I need tips!

Much love,
Adelaide Hare

Seeing Adelaide from the 30th Floor


Westpac House opened it's doors (and elevator!) to the public on the weekend as part of Open House Adelaide. Visitors were able to travel up to the 30th floor and check out the amazing views of the city and beyond.

Westpac House is the tallest building in Adelaide, and the 112th tallest building in Australia (according to Wikipedia).

It was very cool to see the city from a different angle. Everything always looks different from above!

Have a great week! xo
