Claudine, thanks for the thread & photos & to all for their input! They are very beautiful & as Danni said, one can live in a big city, yet open a door & leave that city behind for as long as you choose!
I mistakenly started a very small, but lush garden of grass on my neighbor's roof, for which I need to find a way to remove, for the reasons Chanell & Victor mentioned.
I live in a 2nd story condo & my neighbor's roof is around the corner from my deck. I feed many wild birds & a year ago, I was tossing seed on the roof so the birds could spread out & enjoy some food, cat-free! But they obviously didn't eat it all as a small garden of grass has sprouted - very nice to look at, but I need to get it removed, & since I can't reach it to manually remove, I will be buying some weed killer to spray over with the hose.
Claudine, I see you are also a fan of Audrey Hepburn! Have you a favorite film of hers? Mine would be Roman Holiday then Funny Face! But I also love her as Eliza in My Fair Lady, Sabrina, & Holly in Breakfast at Tiffanys! But I have always had one thing bother me in Breakfast.... & that is the stereotypical role Mickey Rooney played of the Chinese man upstairs - so far over the top & to me, insulting to Asians in general. I know Caopte wrote it that way & the screenplay juiced it up, so Mickey was acting the part the way it was written. I loved all the Mickey Rooney films when he was a young man.
Again, thanks Claudine!
