I did a little primp of the porch while Dan hung the pictures we had framed at Easter. My woodblock print looks gorgeous clad in yellow aluminium.
The main focus of the weekend was to get on with what we are rather grandly calling the courtyard, really it's a bit of paving behind the garage that tends to be filled with junk. Now it's our new eating area, it's not finished yet, but the planters are filled and we are just after a few things to make it more pretty. Our garden isn't large, so we don't want any wasted space.
Dan really wanted grasses, so we chose some that will eventually screen the compost bins to the left, then picked up a couple of small acers to section it off a little more. It's not the cheapest project we've ever done, but as Dan was so engaged with it I was happy to make it happen.
