Patio Extension - Summer IS Coming!


The night before - Friday, April 19, 2013
Saturday Morning - April 20, 2013


Done!  Now to build up with soil and new grass.  Replace boards on house (there was a bush that was removed at corner of existing patio).  But in the meantime.......

Sunday, April 21, 2013  6 p.m.

Moved patio furniture and other items from patio on other side of home.  Will wait until end of season to get new!

Next weekend extensive yard work including planting flowers and filling the containers!  May also get the garden growing again!

Love those red colors, but i don't like diminishing garden areas. I love to have chairs and coffee inside the greens and oxygen giving plants.

I love the patio addition! You can never have too much of that. We enlarged our back deck years ago and it was the best thing we ever did. I can't imagine going back to the tiny one that came with the house. Your patio furniture is pretty out there too.

I just found your blog by poking around other blogs. It's great! I love what you did with your patio. The red chairs and umbrella looks so cheery! I am focused on getting my deck into shape for summer, so I loved seeing what you did with yours!
