Today I want to show some photos of a beutiful balcony garden designed by Sikke Sumari.She is Finnish restaurateur and writer and she designed this balcony for the Housing Fair of Kokkola,Finland in summer 2011.The balcony she designed shows very well that a balcony garden does not need to be a minimalist:there is a wide variety of vegetables and herbs growing like basil,cherry tomatoes,blackberry,eggplant, marjoram, beans, chervil, parsley, cucumber… Isn’t it all so beautiful,green and quiet? I love this balcony!
“Do not take a balcony as a room but as a piece of nature in your home.” Sikke Sumari
Here is another advice from Sikke Sumari:
“Make a story book from your garden of its various stages.Take photos, draw illustrations and dry few flowers.
Write down the snapshots, bits of poetry or other considerations.You will have a wonderful memory for the winter and next summer, you know, what grew well and what is perhaps less well managed.”
