Well the title is very self explanatory. We have been working nonstop over the last weeks on pulling together our outdoor space. We were expecting a lot of people over for an event Wednesday night, so the last few days have been racing the the clock and ignoring sanity.
This table was a collaborative effort on both Justin and my part. It measures ten feet in length and roughly three and a half feet in width. I battled the electric drill to put in the bolts until I had to actually give up. I may be strong enough for some things, but I guess my hands are just lacking enough to keep me from manipulating a quarter-inch-thick, five-inch-long, twisty piece of metal into a solid hunk of douglas fir. I can't tell you the feeling of defeat. But long last, the table is finished, and sits stately, awaiting benches.
I also built two picnic tables . . .
These measure six-feet-long and about three-and-a-half-feet-wide. They are low enough to work comfortably for kids, and adults fit just fine.
We laid mulch, and planted a scattering of greenery. Behind are the garden boxes built a while back, but still not filled. Only one boasts soil and an array of herbs.
The tea garden flourishes and thickens . . .
I adore watching each individual plant . . .
