Pool Progress

It's been a busy week here with lots of action in the backyard.  It's not every morning you wake up to this:

Or this:

I can't believe how fast it all went in.

Imagine a patio where you see the stone.  It will be stamped concrete to match the patio under the deck.

After the patio goes in, we will be putting sod where you see dirt.  Our plan for this year is to decorate with more containers and flowers, so the next week or so should see a more finished look.

Can't wait to spend some summer days back here.

But, I'll leave you with a bit more "finished" part of the house in the front. I found that Boston Fern on sale and thought it would look nice on the shady porch.  Someday I think a pretty white rocking chair would look nice there as well.

Have a great weekend!


  1. that was FAST!!! i'm comin' over with my noodle... :)

  2. I think all the work and the noise are all worth it once you see the end-result! And in your case, a gorgeous inviting pool in your backyard! Congratulations on having a new pool! I think the way to celebrate and enjoy this new addition to your home is to have a pool party! Or simply test the waters and enjoy the dip! [Cathy Newman]
