Having looked at pictures of Margot's newly-renovated deck, I was inspired to share a picture of our own outside oasis. Okay, maybe oasis is a bit to strong a word at this point, but it's coming.

After several weeks of waiting for the rain to stop, accompanied by a few hours of pressure washing and sanding, we finally got the first coat of stain on our deck. Gotta say we're really happy with the result.

One more coat this evening and tomorrow the deck furniture goes back outside – along with ourselves and a few bottles of Negra Modelo: best summer beer in the world. (As opposed to Guinness, which is the best winter beer in the world)

Next step for the deck? Flowers and plants. We'll take a picture.

    I love it! Especially the space left for the tree, and the tiered plant boxes. I'm imagining hostas….too common?

  2. When that thing growing there now started to sprout I thought it WAS hostas, but it's not. I don't know what it is. We definitely want a few herbs, and the rest will likely be filled with bushier plants – or maybe some impatients. Or nothing. We're kind of limited by budget this year. It might be next year before we get to adding plants.
