these, then, and a little pretty thyme plant that avoided picture, and some more mint, grow on my balcony. i really like the tomato plant who has been very diligent and tomato. the mint also is growing proud. and of course the aztec marigolds.. those just thrive on the sun and my forgetfulness. the basil seems to like it, too, and the begonia has doubled in size since i bought it. i still miss a sage plant.
