Last weekend, my brother came to visit and be brought my plants back to Brooklyn. For a little while they were all on the floor in my bedroom again, but then, last Monday, I pulled them out of the boxes and replenished soil that had eroded and put my sedum into a bigger pot. And planted my new poppies and my lantana — one of the few annuals that I can’t resist. And so, after two years, and all sort of things I never could have expected, I’ve got my ledge garden back.
