It's Spring!

It is spring at our house. We celebrated by cleaning up our balcony last weekend and getting it puppy-proofed. Because, of course, our puppy who is very hesitant to jump off the couch has no qualms at all about sticking his entire head and shoulders through the bars of our 2nd floor balcony. Super. So, we put up some chicken wire along the inside of our railings.

Haha! Stick your head out NOW, puppy! He really loves it out there. He just sits there and watches the world go by. In this picture he's standing up, but usually he's lying down out there. I haven't been able to get a shot of that yet, though, because every time he hears me click on the camera, he runs inside to check it out. *sigh*

He's not's very nice out there. Check out the view and a close-up of that gorgeous pink-flowered tree. So pretty!

I didn't know that tree would be so pretty in the spring. We moved in in July, so this is a nice surprise.

Anyway, happy spring everyone!

    While reading your post I actually thought, "they could use an invisible fence instead, by running the wire around the edge of the balcony", but it occurred to me that such a fence would not only fail to prevent Newton from going through the bars but would add insult/electrical shock to injury as he fell. Perhaps chicken wire is best.
