Addendum, June 10th: Oops -- forgot to explain the asterisk (*) after "serenity" in the first line. I wrote yesterday's post while roofers finished erecting scaffolding around our condo, floor-installers sawed new baseboards for the apartment in the building next door, heavy machines continued tearing up the side street for new Hydro pipes, and a recycling truck and moving van negotiated for space in the alley behind our building. Yes, my little balcony has become a green oasis that grounds, calms and nourishes me.
