I think I have an obsession with balconies. Sometimes I even think that a balcony is more inviting and cozy than a huge big garden, where there is a lot of work to be done and you really have to like gardening. Some people are really good with plants and know how to create beautiful garden rooms. I really admire them. Unfortunately, I am not one of them. Perhaps because I used to live in apartments (called flats) when I was living in London and I never had a big garden. But I liked decorating a small balcony when I had one. Just with a table and chairs and a couple of flower pots.
When I walk around Montreal I always admire the balconies and the stairs. I take pictures of streets and the stairs and sometimes of the balconies if I can get near enough, or I ask some friends to send me pictures of their balconies.
Here are a some more pics of balconies.
lots of plants on this little balcony.
lots of lovely stairs and balconies on this street.
