The new studio garden patio

 Here are a couple of before and during shots of the new garden area we are building. You will see that we took down a very large scrub tree that was left to grow out of control. This does mean that a lot of shade is now gone that was quite nice during our hottest months here. Nonetheless this ugly tree is gone now to be replaced by some very nice natural light.

This area is right outside of my workroom and is my new view while working. Tim did a great job on the patio area, thanks honey. This screen dooris a favorite of mine, it was saved from a pile of trash in Pensacola after hurricane Ivan blew through town. I am undecided if it should be left outside to weather but really have not found a great place for it inside. What do you think? Do you see the little bird within the metalwork?

It has been a long time since I have been in the garden, my skin itches and breaks out but this is worth it so far.

Cheryl, Your garden area is beautiful. Love the screen. Seems like it would make a great garden trellis. Love the bottomless chair too.

This is so beatiful and inviting! I'd love to come sit right here and visit with you! We are getting a pond on our small farm as soon as our friend with the heavy equipment to dig it can fit us in his schedule and whenever this spate of afternoon thunderstorms abates a bit! I am excited and can't wait to landscape around it! I am already envisioning all of the frogs, toads, turtles and other creatures that will come to it!
