Back Yard Bliss

Summer has finally arrived. It took us two months to get the pool finished. The ugly hole is now an azure oasis. But with the bad weather, we couldn't have used it any sooner. We have never had to wait until August to be swimming. Usually by end of May we start jumping in and making a big splash.

Last night we had some friends over and had a nice BBQ dinner and a swim. Today we are back to clouds! Blagh! One thing though, the cool weather has made for fabulous window boxes. They haven't been drying out to badly. Only watering them every few days!

I love the shed that Keith's dad made for us. The window boxes finish it off perfectly.

The only thing missing in that perfect picture, is me sitting in the chair. Oh my goodness, your backyard is paradise!

What a nice place to stay, it's like a hotel terrace :-) The swimming pool looks great.
