the fire escape

it is time. 


spring is here. 

it shouldn't be too cold anymore.

which means, 
fire escape garden. 



so excited. 



last weekend, i went out and got soil and pots.
and maybe planted some arugula seeds. 


(look how much it has grown already!) 



plus i had my lavender and mint from the garden club.



then this weekend, 
i couldn't help it, 
i bought my herbies. 



rosemary
thyme
sage
tarragon
basil
parsley
chives


rockstar.



now i have to figure out what other cool things i should plant. 
maybe tomatoes, 
or peppers,
or maybe even beans.
(cause how cute would they look growing up the railing of my fire escape?)

whatever it is though, 
it's going to be good.




now if i could just prevent my cats 
from going into the neighbors apartment. 
that would be swell.


yesterday,
captain cornelius, 
genius that he is,
decided to sneak into their apartment
before i could retrieve him.

luckily no one was home to discover him
and their cat scared the captain out of the apartment. 
otherwise, i was going to have to climb into that apartment
and retrieve him.



chaos.
