A Leafy Glade

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

The first patio is complete and I thought I would share some photos of our leafy glade.  We are all about shade, shade and more shade(maybe it’s because I burn, burn, burn with my Scottish blood) so I tend to prefer the dappled sun and shade.

The chairs in case you are interested are 100% recycled plastic(this one’s for Jill) and you can buy them at Lowes for $18 each – yes it’s true!!Perennials and annuals in pots alike surround the view and bring a little color to our green oasis.

Only 4,000 more pounds to go!  Have a good weekend.

  2. WOW! What a lovely area to relax…..especially before the next 4000 pounds….omg…!
    Beautiful patio and the plants look lovely.
    Take a break between those stones!


  3. What a wonderful place to relax. The chairs look comfy … wonder how they do for short folks?!!

  4. What a lovely peaceful place to sit! I love the shade too as I am very fair skinned and burn really easily(I have Scottish blood too from my grandfather). I had to enlarge the photo of your rocks and windchimes to check what they were……..armadillo came to mind but I didn’t think that could be right lol 🙂 Take care moving all those stones.
