Winter surprise

Well ... it is only early April. And it could be worse. We could be buried ... although it's a little early to think we're out of the woods. They've been changing the forecast all day. I don't think I'll be doing anything outside for the next few days ... although it's supposed to get much better by Thursday. And be a beautiful Easter weekend. I sure hope so ... there's SO much to do. Here's a picture of our patio and more importantly our trellis wall. This was the remnants of our first metal and canvas gazebo which collapsed (I think this was the first of second year they were available ... they've come a LONG way.... It's a little difficult to see but Barry and my brother attached the corner panels to 4x4's and used spikes in the ground. Barry's painting it all black, hopefully this weekend... Amazing what a little thought can produce. We have honeysuckle growing up the trellis wall to give us some privacy. The patio is higher than the fence at the back which faces Pickering Beach Rd. so it gives us some privacy while we eat. Until next time ....


  1. Your little garden is beautiful. I can see the beginnings of what will be. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving the great comment.

  2. Thanks for your comments. That's only a very small portion of the garden. We don't have any grass in our backyard ... yes, I'm obsessive, it's all flowers and a 14x16' deck and pergola. And the front yard is all gardens except for a bit of grass. Barry finally said "enough is enough". I have to deal ... ain't life great!
    Have a fabulous day!
