There are so many things we want to do with our balcony, but the first thing to do was clean it. It looked like it hadn't been used/cleaned in years, so there was some serious scrubbing to be done. Too bad I don't have a 'before' picture, because it really is gleaming now!We've attempted to eat several meals out here (combating wasps is next on our agenda), read several hundred pages, had phone conversations, and even a pedicure has already happened on our newly cleaned balcony! I'm even tempted to do a sleep-out night like this now that I know it's actually had a deep clean...This winter we plan to hang a bird feeder in the tree tops just past the railing. We might even put up the flower boxes along the railing and plant some hardy winter plants. Realistically, I think the flower boxes won't happen until next spring.
