It's time to do a refurbish of our deck.
Our potted trees have died over time. Our patio table broke 2 winters ago, along with the umbrella. Our outdoor fountain stopped working......
John decided instead of buying new patio furniture we would keep what we have and he would make a new table out of wood. It's been a really long time since I've seen him work with wood. This should be interesting.
So he prodeeded to make the table...We choose a nice emerald green:
...and he surprised me with some benches to go around the A/C unit that sits outside.
John bought a cute flag
Now this is how to relax:
Table is finished and we bought a beige umbrella that has solar lights inside.
There was a huge sale on trees
We start some of the planting. John asked if he could do some of the flowers, and even though I love planting, I let him do 2 pots. He asked me what colors I wanted to do this year and I said purples and yellow.
A little while later I asked where he was going and he said "The flowers are ready". ??
He had the garden guy pot the flowers for him. LOL
Here is what "they" came up with - a whole bunch of the same flower - the flower has both yellow and purple. LOL They are really pretty pansies though, and I do love the colors.
OK, now it is my turn...
John wanted the big tree that he bought (for a whopping $24) to go smack in the middle of the deck.
Here is the fountain we bought, discontinued, last one, and on sale.
John will buid a wooden box for under it to raise it up.
I get to paint it to make it look like grey stone.
Well, this is one of the reasons I love it here.
And a short movie...
