So much effort, so little effect.

  1. I think it's a great effect, dog pee and all. :)

    1. I did wash the concrete off right after! Sometimes their aim is off.

  2. Ah, I never considered that there was only interior access to the balcony... now I see why you waited so long to garden up there. :) It will be worth it in the end though!

  3. Even if its just glimpses, it looks as though you're making progress with your balcony. I like the blue and brown containers - the one you painted brown looks good. Tell the puppies to stow the comments or you'll make them act as pack mules.

    1. It would be nice to get some work out of them. What they seem to be best at is looking beautiful.

  4. Effort, yes. I take it you just don't like the grouping of containers, or the plants, or...?

    1. No, I like them--just wondering if I'll ever get done, and how it will look. It's sort of fun trying to figure it all out.

  5. I like the look, but it will be even better as the plants grow bigger. I love your colorscheme and the practical way you make it happen. I could not do the up and down!

  6. The balustrade is very elegant. I like the tall blue container's glaze, it looks great with the plant and white flower.

    1. Thank you, Hannah! I like that tall container a lot too.

  7. The effort on your balcony looks great! And your dog, he is such a wise animal, how he is watching you.......
