Resting Place

Postby tilly » Sat Jun 28, 2008 5:27 pm

I really call it the landing pad :lol: ...have been tempted to add more than the two pots and seat but think it is a case of less is best...when the hedge grows it will be very private

Thanks veggie..Thee the roses are the few I didn't prune (bin was full) shall do tomorrow....yes it is a huge front yard and they are the rest of those bricks from the old chimmney....Urns...do you mean in the background or the black ones..they are just white cement pots painted black (need doing again) got a few pick them up at garage sales$5 to $7 ....when hubby did the landing pad I had visions of two of those really tall urns made out of cast iron or whatever....then I got back to reality and realized it was just a vision :) (money :roll: )

Lovely photo, :D by the way, I am told if you hang pieces of fresh mint around your seat it will keep the little green men from landing. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tilly you have captured the area well...surprising how lush its all looking considering 12 months ago you had tight water restrictions..think it could be a nice "resting place" as you say!!

It does look like a peaceful resting place. Love the bricks they have been laid exceptionally well. :)
