Gifts in the Garden
With our renovation project to the house last year came a new deck which connects to the concrete patio. The patio is actually an ice skating rink poured by the previous owner in deference to the budding ice skating skills of their daughter. At any rate, the area has looked a bit bare despite the new furniture we picked up last year for the deck. My husband was able to score some additional patio furniture from a university here who is getting new stuff for the school. We placed it all Thursday night, and what a difference it makes. We now have a wonderful outdoor living room. As we were enjoying it last night with a glass of wine, our neighbors from both sides came over and joined us for the evening. I can't think of a better gift following a hectic week than visiting with friends on a beautiful St. Louis spring evening. Cheers!
