Inspirational Thursday-Balcony Gardening In New Orleans

As you know our journey to  New Orleans was a delight.  We 

enjoyed good food, listened to great music, and appreciated the 

natural beauty of a well loved City.  We also took a little

walkabout and with camera in hand - this is what we saw! 









Beautiful Balcony Gardening in New Orleans, where abundant 

flowers and foliage are mixed together with wrought iron, rich and 

vibrant hues and a colorful History.







Ferns and trailing vines grace this terracotta colored stucco home, I 

could almost envision a Historical figure emerging from one of these 

illuminating grey doors.  



Such a beautiful balcony garden graces this charming and cheerful 

yellow home.  Planters with tumbling sweet potato vines, 

periwinkles, and graceful trellises.  We watched tentatively

as a mysterious looking fellow carefully watered each and every 

planter.






Variegated spider plants, lime green foxtail fern, and a forest 

green pine tree enhance this nestled balcony.








Perky peach blossom tinted balconies, accented with basic black

provide the perfect backdrop for flowering hibiscus and english 

ivy. 






Cool, light white trimmed with grey, swaying boston ferns and

happy caladiums bid us a fond farewell...

  3. Oh my GOODNESS, Jemma. I LOVED those photos. Fabulous balcony plants, aren't they?

    I went to a conference in New Orleans once and loved it. It was SO DIFFERENT. I remember taking a ghost tour and seeing the French quarter. Fascinating place.

    So glad you got to go. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photo. Susan
