Finishing touches

Over the past couple of evenings, we have worked on the final touches to the patio. First there were the cobbles.

We think they look neat and add an interesting finish round the edge. They look even better when wet.

All different colours, patterns and textures.

Then we added some colourful pots....

...and the job's done.

Hang on a minute, though. Next evening....

...a little bit...

...of self-assembly....

...and we have a nice place to sit.

Good quality hardwood. Nicely made table and chairs.

Just add a parasol.... keep the sun (or in this case rain!) off.

So there are times when I thought I'd never be able to say this but...

the patio

is finally


Thank you all for your kind comments and thoughts on the patio build over the past few weeks.
