Backyard Sprucing…


For many years I have wondered what to do with my little patio. When we first moved in and had it built we thought that we would only want a small one so that we had more green space. But as the years have passed; I think we should have made it larger. Yes, we could get it made larger now, but there are so many other things that are going to take priority. We did have a small patio table and chairs there initially but we only ate out there a couple times a summer. So this year we decided to make it more cozy and intimate for reading or having a drink on the warm summer evenings. Our backyard has lovely mature trees now and it is very private in our backyard, so this is what we came up with.

I planted a small herb garden; Italian Parsley, Oregano, and Basil. It smells so good when you are sitting reading. It is so nice out there now. I love spending time out there. The sun goes around to the front of our house in the evenings, so it is cool and pretty and we are just loving our backyard. Soon I will have some pictures of all the flowers we have growing this year.
