I fussed about with the balcony some more and this is what I came up with. Took two old candles and stuck them into the wire-net covering the lemon-tree pot (the net is there to prevent my older kitty from digging and doing the dirty stuff. That's how she killed two plants already). In the daytime it looks kinda naff but in the dark, when you light them, it looks OK.
Tried to photograph it with flash on but it doesn't look right. Even the flowers are purple instead of pink.
See that wine glass? There's wine in it! Even though the steroids are not quite washed out of me yet, I can allow myself a drinkie now and then. I'm rehearsing for my birthday next week.
