Your Favorite Thing About Your Outdoor Space: I feel so lucky to have any outdoor space in the city, so even though it's tiny, I try to make the most of it (which I also do with my front porch, but that's another garden and another story). I know that some would consider it cluttered and claustrophobic, but I love sitting out there lazing in the (two hours of) sun with my cats, a bellini and a stack of books and magazines.
Tips for Creating a Great Small Outdoor Space: Accessorize with things you love. I have been collecting those California flowerpots for years, and they add color and cheer even when nothing's in bloom. Also, consider how your garden looks from different angles (through the kitchen window, looking down from a second story) since that way you can enjoy it even when you're not in it. My sitting room/library looks out onto the deck's main railing, so I combine specific colors of pots and plants to enhance this view.
Thanks, KD, and good luck!
