I like your balcony and it reminds me how a good balcony is a must when I buy a home for the first time. I want to be able to sneak out there now and then.
I have one now but it is not really cosy or made for sitting there and gets warm in the summer. I actually found a flat where the balcony was headed north which is so rare and so smart at summer with shade making it cool.
But every builder was thinking people wanna sit in the sun all day. We used to sit on the balcony here the first years I lived here but when we stopped. But we did go out at night at times looking a the wild life passing by and talking to foxes and deers and cats and rabbits and they all stopped and listened them moved on.
A cat used to visit us on the balcony and roll on the floor and sometimes we walked it home to the house next to mine and ring the door and make the young woman let it in.
Not weird at all!
