This Sunday I want to show you a terrace and some balconies in my city that have caught my eye.
Something about this little vine dangling terrace caught my eye and my heart. I wish it had an awning, table, chairs, and potted plants.
This balcony is so small, and so impractical as to be nearly unusable. Still, something about the clear clean white lines caught my eye.
How about this tiny balcony? I think the wrought iron gives it a Spanish flair.
If you LOVE it, I have good news for you - - - there's a "for sale" sign out front, the back side has a view of the Mighty Wisconsin, and I'd LOVE to have me some bloggy buddy neighbors.
I saw this big old Victorian and I thought, "What, no balcony Victoria???"
She NEEDS a balcony, doesn't she?
I looked around the corner to the side of the house, and low and behold - - - THERE was the tiny balcony.
Kind of an alcove balcony - - - perfect for a rendezvous!!!
Then there's this small white balcony with the chandelier nearly twice it's size!!! Quite stately.
Who knew we had "Gone With the Wind" in our little Central Wisconsin city???
I have long loved this house from the front. Just the other day I was a little surprised to discover it had a full balcony across the back.
I imagine the faux owl on the railing is scaring away pigeons and starlings.
"God Bless America, land that I love!!"
I love how this one feels like a porch above a porch. I think I'd have some furniture up there to enjoy a cool evening breeze.
Another beauty which you could own if you want to relocate here!
I've admired this house ever since I began working at the library and passing it's for sale sign every day.
I didn't notice this balcony across the back until today.
And how about all those "gingerbread" details? I think I'm in love.
And yes, I did walk right up to their garage door to snap this shot - - - I go to great lengths for you, my bloggy friends!
No no, don't strain your eyes looking for a balcony in this one - - - it isn't here.
This is the vista which can be viewed from the final two balconies of this post. It is our beautiful and busy Wisconsin River.
As a BONUS, on the 4th of July these folks can observe the fireworks without ever leaving their own balconies!!
Some might call this one a deck - - - but notice how HIGH it is. That is a full size car down there in the garage on the left.
I must tell you, I've been tempted to try to befriend these folks just so I could sit with them on their balcony and have a front row seat at the fireworks.
Yes, I really did admit that.
And finally, this modest balcony. Again, my fingers are itching to put some furniture up there - - - I think I could make it quite festive with some canvas lawn chairs and a matching table umbrella. I'm thinking red.
The pop of color wouldn't hurt either!!!
I hope you've enjoyed this balcony tour of my city. Now please hurry over to Unknown Mami's place to see what others are sharing from their cities this week.
