Small But Mighty

Small but mighty, our summer balcony can host an intimate dinner party.

Well, it can't hold a dinner table (we step inside for that) but the 8 x 10
 open-sky space
 hosts pre-dinner drinks and appetizers, breakfast coffees,
 and Fourth of July fireworks.

The potting bench with a galvanized metal top is the basis for container gardening--
nothing but water and deadheading required.
And it's an inspiring space to practice napkin folds for future social gatherings.

This summer, kitchen towels will unfurl like sails on the laps of my guests...
