It’s amazing how much my spirits have been lifted by the arrival of Spring. I was doing a bit of shopping at the local shopping precinct. Normally a mundane activity but was almost a joy in the sun.
I painted 5 garden chairs with black Hammerite paint. I like these chairs. Once you get the cushions on they are very comfortable. You can see the table in the corner – that’s our little sun trap area. After noon it gets the sun until late evening. The table is big enough for the family to sit at and I plan to get a BBQ installed nearby.
I plan to get rid of the gravel at some point but I expect that will be next year now. I’ve a nice shady spot close to the house that needs a lick of paint and I may buy another table so it’s easier to pop outside with a book and a cuppa.
You can probably see that the wall by the table needs repainting and once that is doing I plan to put some plants in pots up there. I was thinking of a small herb garden or just some flowers.
