Balcony love...

A place to relax, anytime of the day with a cup of hot chai. Do join me...maybe it's the lovely rainy weather outside:-)
Enjoy your balconies!

Wow that was a feast for the eyes!! Really!! I wish I had a green thumb like you. I have a lot to learn.
I love the orange accent of the bench & the iron round table is gorgeous.
How do you protect your wooden furniture from the weather?

Arch, I'm feeling so homesick looking at these pics, missing India, the rains, the people, the chais, the conversations, the rikshas, the hustle bustle :)

I feel so nostalgic and miss India during the monsoons. Your balcony and the garam chai looks heavenly !

i have 2 wooden chairs that i wanted to put there, but am not sure of i can. what do u do when it rains? do you leave your chair out?

Love the earthy hues, Arch ! And the greenery. Where did you get those plaques? They look so cute!
My verandah is the most lived-in 'room' in my house. Especially during the monsoons. And summer. And, of course, winter (what litle there is of it in Mumbai) and spring!
And yes, it's seen a lot of cups of tea in my hand too :)

You weave magic with your camera. Lovely pics!

Priyanka said...

Wow.. the balcony seems like anyone's dream terrace garden. Love your terracotta-color tiles and the beautiful, antique furniture and the greens. Oh and the small ganesha and other clay items you have on your wall are gorgeous - a handicraft mela find?

vineeta said...

I love that balcony. But I love the photography even better. What camera do you use, Arch?
