This is the way the deck used to look - pretty grim.
Nothing but clover and weeds would grow between the flagstones.
Nothing like sitting outside, reading a good book, surrounded by dirt.
Oh, and a small patch of myrtle which Lily
used to bury herself in.
Sorry Lily. You'll have to make do with potted plants!
The deck guy spent yesterday measuring and making
giant post holes. Not sure what he is working on at present though I can hear a
lot of whacking! I'm afraid to look! A big pile of wood was just delivered.
Oh thank goodness....COLOUR! Saw these gorgeous fuchsia coloured
flowers on my most recent trek around Fanshawe Lake.
Wild Sweet William?
A feast for the eyes!
I am in love with this trail. New growth trees, old growth trees, turtles,
snakes, deer...21kms of great trails.
Isn't it lovely?
I could build me a wee cottage! Well, not me...but
somebody could build me a wee cottage.
Hope you're enjoying summer now that it is finally here. Around here we had a cold wet spring - it wasn't nice AT ALL and then it instantly became summer complete with blisteringly hot days and hot sticky nights. But I'm not complaining! I look forward to sitting on my deck soon (hope he's a fast worker) shaded by my huge maple trees...cool drink to hand....mystery novel to hand (because I have two hands!) and hopefully a nice breeze.
