design: a room with a view

I once had a balcony but no garden and now I have a garden but no balcony. I enjoy both but I´ve always dreamed of having a rooftop garden or terrace. It doesn't have to be big, just enough to fit some flowers and garden furniture. It's not very common in Iceland, most likely because of the weather.  Recently I visited a friend in Brighton and got Oh so happy when I saw her lovely small garden up on the roof, with beautiful flowers and a hammock and of course Pimm´s. Happy times!

    1. Hi Megan, so nice to hear from you.
      In my garden I grow perennials, tulips, lavender and roses.
      I also grow some parsley, salvia, salad and thime.
      Have a nice summer!
      Best wishes, Elín Hrund
