Its funny how sometimes things just come together. Last week I placed an olive tree and my old Mexican lanterns in the garden around the pool deck and everything suddenly made sense.
Finally I know what we need to do in this space. Another olive on the other side of the deck will frame the seating area and add the height we are missing. The fence needs to be covered in this gorgeous blue flowering creeper (Thurnbergia Grandifloria photo by Jean Pawek), or perhaps wisteria, or maybe both. That will be a great starting point. Sometime in the future I can add daybeds, cushions and other nice to have bits. Wouldn't a fire pit be great!
Can't wait for summer to arrive so we can enjoy with family and friends, cold drink anyone?
