I’ll admit, I live in a city that’s sunny over 300 days a year. I love being outside and try to take advantage of the great weather as much as possible. Though I recently moved from a house, with a back yard and patio, to an apartment that only offers a small balcony, I take advantage of my sliver of sun whenever I get the chance. To inspire you to spend more time outside with spring hovering around the corner (even for those unfortunate souls who are still in the throes of winter), here is an image and link to Sunset.com that will bring hope of warmer weather and more time outside:
My own balcony is a work in progress; my husband needs to add a shelf to the railing so we can attach window boxes for colorful flowers this spring and we are in the process of ordering an outdoor pull-down shade since we face west. Think blaring sun come June and July that will come blazing into our living room – yikes! I knew this when we picked a west-facing apartment, but in the middle of October, we weren’t thinking about the summer sun. I’ll soon share a photo of my own small balcony once it’s finished.
Enjoy the slide show in the meantime!
Do you spend more time outside come spring? What areas of your house get the most use during the warmer months?
