This is my favorite thing in all of my gardens and the one I use the most....an outdoor sink! It has hot and cold running water and the basin is made from an old lab sink so it is virtually indestructible. I really miss this when it is closed down for winter.
And as predicted, the arborist and his crew broke all of my hostas and broke my little garden fairy. This is why I tried to get him out in early March but he always waits until the perennials pop out so he can destroy them.
The pool is clearing up. The copper filter system we use puts a slight electrical charge through the water. It is just enough to kill algae. I don't like the idea of swimming in a pool full of chemicals.
On the advice of my blog buddy over at autumnforest, I collected all of my broken windchime pieces and made a windchime out of a English Walking Stick branch.
I added some outdoor cushions to the gazebo but I think these are too bright. So these are going on the Blog Techs front porch where they will look much better and I am hunting for pillows that will complement this area more than the red ones.
