The Deck has Begun!

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. 
Hurrah! Progress!

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 drink to hand....mystery novel to hand (because I have two hands!) and hopefully a nice breeze.


  1. I personally love the flagstones. I also love a path to wander.

  2. I think the flagstones are lovely too, but I understand the lure of the deck. Ours is currently unsittable because it is just butt hot and humid right now, but when the heat wave breaks we will be back on the deck!

  3. Congrats on your new deck! I hope it's everything you hoped for and you can enjoy a good book out there. Our deck is super sunny in the morning and then you forget about it in the afternoon... I need to get out there and enjoy it before it gets cold and I can't.

  4. So glad you are getting the new deck done - it is amazing how such a thing improves quality of life. I see many hours of relaxation out there for you (a bit like camp life). I hope the weather holds off for the build!

  5. I love that someone loved this so much that they advertised their ATM HACKING SERVICES to allow you the opportunity to pay for your deck in stolen USD. O_o

    Anyhoo...that tunnel of trees reminds me of our first overnight on Hadrian's Wall - the trees that formed the path around to the B&B. Lovely! Hope the deck is all that you're hoping for xx

  6. Oh my goodness, that trail is delicious. Have to get my backside into gear and go hunting for more places like that!

    You already know, many persons are looking around for this information, you can aid them greatly. SOMEONE ACQUIRED A FAKE BIRTH CERTIFICATE ONLINE FOR HIS NEW LIFE I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is lovely worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net can be much more useful than ever before.
