Hey Shamrock! Here they are, the pics! I pruned the basils and chillis yesterday so I thought I would wait a bit before taking those.

Your rooftop garden is very nice. Can show a wide angle shot?

I went to Petunia's house and my first word to her was "WOW." In caps. Yups. :D/>

She has a beautiful place, and an even better garden. Neat, yet classy and comfy. :D/> I loved it.

I am not sure what is a wide angle shot, but I took two where you can see more in one picture.

That's actually a purple petunia. My camera doesn't do justice to the royal purple. It's my only pot of petunia and I love it for its rich purple velvet blooms.

I bought the variegated thyme at FEF about 3 months back. They had lemon thyme too.

Thank you all for the encouraging comments!

Some of the plants actually belong to my son. We fight over space in the garden. This is one area where it actually is difficult to follow the maternal instinct of wanting to make my children happy!

And you also got a nice view, no flats or houses blocking it.

petunialee: Your garden is absolutely beautiful and the view beyond is stunning! One regret - the photos are small. I wish they were bigger so that I can see better (poor eye sight, you know!)

Thank you very much for sharing your piece of heaven.
