Adding to the patio
Posted on Jul 11, 2011 11:50 AM

Have been thinking about doing this for a while now so yesterday I did it.  We have a covered patio that a friend and I built the roof over back in 2003.  It gets a LOT of use throughout the year for grilling and entertaining so I said it just needs a bar to complete it!  Cheryl had it in her head this year to redo the whole area with new paint and cushions in the seating area so I said I'll build that bar I've been wanting.  Started on it yesterday and should be done by the end of the coming weekend including the tile top.  Then we'll have a glass of wine to christen the new relaxing center.

Dug's musings

The start of new gardening website is like late winter in the garden.  Looking forward to so many new things to grow and evolve.  I think Dave and Trish have a hit on their hands.  I may be finally able to break free of the IB strangehold of DG.  Trish made me the moderator of the Shade Gardening forum and I'm excited about it.  Gardening in the shade to me is so much more enjoyable.  A peaceful solitude envelopes you when in the woodland garden admiring nature's and your own handiwork.  This time of year the relief from the heat makes it even more desirable to be a shade gardener.

Yep it's Spring all over again with the official launch today of Dave and Trish's latest endeavor.  Here's to a fruitful and bountiful harvest!
