I thought of all sorts of things to make this outdoor area into a room of sorts. Hanging drop cloths tied back with decorative rope..(saw that somewhere)...
Finally..I have decided that a living wall will do it. So..
I have begun making my wall of hanging plants that you have to push aside..and even when it is hot..it's really rather nice out there. I wet down the flagstones..and it stays very nice even at 100 degree's. Ok..yes..I'm telling you a gollywogger...but it isn't bad. At least not THAT bad!
I have two fans because the tin roof won't support an outdoor ceiling fan. Did you know that tin gets HOT!! HOT! HOTTER???
Slowly the vines and roses are closing us in..
This is outside the actual patio area..over to one side next to the shed.
On the left (behind that chair back) you can see where you have to push the vines aside to get past.
This is the vines from the other side.
Mercy! I never remember to roll up the hose..We have two out there..a double faucet..and I love it. Can water the lawn which I water the patio. I want one of those.."Pocket Hoses"...One of the bloggers has the cutes story about hers. Must go find it and put a link on here.
The extra footage we added to the patio..about seven feet..has been quickly filled.
I promise myself that when I get the patio enclosed..I will stop my Saturday forages for plants to ..um..cozy it up?
Today I used my clothesline..the kind that is attached to one wall and pulls out to attach to the other side. I hung up my jeans to dry..(don't like what the dryer does to them...) and suddenly realized..
that..it is QUITE cozy enough. Perhaps...just a WEE too cozy??
I must think on this. LOL
