Inspired by this beautiful weather, we spent most of our Sunday cleaning the balcony, repotting a few plants, and pruning all the rest. We finally put the patio chairs out, after storing them over the winter. At the end it was very rewarding to sit down and enjoy a glass of wine outside. We wish that our balcony was a garden with a hammock and an outdoor fireplace. For now we will enjoy what we have, but it doesn't hurt to look around and get ideas for the perfect garden.
has a wonderful gallery of outdoor spaces. A few of them are too modern for us, since we love lots of plants, greenery, and full grown trees, but overall they are very inspiring. The ones with a hammock or defined lounge areas are our favorites. The candle light in the garden is a nice touch for warm summer nights.
