I have never lived in a flat, as opposed to a house. But if I did, the most difficult part would be living without lawn, trees, bushes and flowers. Clearly this balcony has taken the need for flora and greenery to heart, filling the space with a small garden. It would be immensely pleasurable for the family.
Hels - it's the corner of a little park, an elevated park, which is above the garages of a block of apartments. I'll show more of it another day.
