Ah, the great backyard makeover!
Things are coming along nicely! Nothing like a couple of big events in the backyard to motivate us to get it all prettied up! Oldest Texas Boy graduated from Texas Tech…and we’re having a big old graduation party for him Saturday. Then, of course, the Magnificent Rehearsal Dinner ™ next week.
In the upper garden, I’m waiting until the last minute to finish cutting off the remains of the tulips and daffodils. They are pretty browned out by now. We have one more flat of petunias to put in here, then I think we’ll call it quits.
Pots of pretty variegated geraniums line the stone stairway.
We got some more furniture for the courtyard area…but most of the time people just perch all along the walls.
We got some comfortable wicker furniture for the gazebo. SuperGuy rescreened the gazebo and replaced the door. We got a new rug. (I think it’s cute, but it needs to be flattened out again!) The gazebo has a ceiling fan. So nice in the summer time. All this photo needs is me and an ice cold beer, don’t you think?
I’m getting pretty excited, can you tell??
