Running Into An Old Friend

I knew that the balcony flowerboxes in Germany were legendary and made sure that the flat we rented had them. Even if my balcony were in full shade, I figured I’d make the best of it. As it happens, my balcony faces northeast by east, so it gets a couple few hours of morning sun on clear days. Perfect. There are floral shops everywhere and I’ve been poking around, looking for the herbs I’d like to grow. I could scarcely believe it when I came across this familiar face!

Hallo, old friend! I never thought I’d see you here! Won’t you come home with me? I unwound the vines and they sprawl along the entire length of the balcony. Now I have the most disorderly looking balcony garden on the block, but it reminds me of home in Austin.
