It has been a lovely mild winter. I am not a fan of snow and cold. I would even go so far as to say I prefer warm and wet to cold and sunny. A would not agree. He can't get enough sun. He was in heaven in the South with the heat and humidity for months on end while I was on Benadryl for constant heat rash!
ignore the dead hedge in the background we're going to rip it out this summer
Anyway, we both love being outside and the deck on this house was a big selling point. We hosted about 15 people on it for R's birthday last June with plenty of room to spare. This year A used some of his Christmas money (thanks Mom!) to buy a patio heater. We tried to take advantage of the mild February weather by cleaning up the deck for K's birthday, but it turned out not to be too sunny that day and the only traffic on the deck was to go check out the patio heater. Here it is!
doesn't this look like a great place for morning coffee?
I my dreams the forest green railing is white, the deck is wood, and there is a new fence (higher) and a playhouse where the dead hedge is now. Oh, OK and a circular bench around the tree in the middle of the yard. Maybe one day!
