My Grotto

It seems to have done nothing but rain, where has our summer gone?  I think it is here now for a few days anyway.  So a little update on my little garden (patio/balcony).
I brought some scaffolding, which I have erected and topped with an old lace bedspread.  I have my baskets and dangles hanging off it.  

 You can see my bird cage on the left.  I have two finches who love the sun, but I have to give them some shade when its this hot.
 Some of my baskets and flowers (looking East)
 In the centre I have made a chandelier, using crystals and my wind chime.  I have some solar lights that twinkle at night and these are woven through my chandelier.
 At the bottom of my stairs I have some more plants on a shelve unit.
 Plants going up the stairs.
 Dolly and my lupins.
 My peace lily, fuchsia and honeysuckle all in flower.
My umbrella plant loves it out here too, its sprouting everywhere.  Partially because Hunny gave it a trim lol.

Like what you have manage to do with limited space. You wind chimes are a novel idea. Will visit again.

Thank you both. The weather has been so awful there's not much chance to do anything outside.
