Following our recent pond project we had lots of messes to clean up.
Our patio was definitely not a wonderful destination two weeks ago but it has been transformed through a little hard work and creative thinking.
We decided to remove everything from the patio and give it the springtime powerwash.
My husband and I both love to powerwash because it makes so much impact for the amount of effort it takes. Our patio is made of two areas - part is under the roof line and part is open air. We've always had the wicker furniture under the roof but decided to switch the furniture this year to give us the best view of the pond from the comfortable seats.
The eating table and glider are now closer to the kitchen door and fireplace.
This works nicely too for ease of serving food.
We've been enjoying our coffee out here in the mornings and the sunset/moonrise in the evenings.
We've been amazed at the number of lightning bugs there are and the symphony of frogs is underway.
It's funny how something as simple as switching the location of the furniture has extended our living space dramatically. This was completely my husband's idea and he was smart to think of it!
Now about the view...
