Here is a little project I've been working on. I have a small pond off our patio but after the above ground pool was removed I didn't want just a patch of grass... the dirt from the dig
went into a raised garden that was where our pool deck lived. We still have some platings, patio blocks and water features to finish and I need to make another homemade filter system that will empty into the large vase that spills into the pond. The pond id 32 inches deep at it's deepest and on the right is a 12 inch deep shelf for water plants that don't need to be submersed.
We spent a few days In Port Ludlow and Sequim last week. That area experienced a tremendous wind storm quite a few years ago,No one could pinpoint exactly, but the storm blew down
thousands of trees. What has happened IMHO , is something out of a futuristic movie. Such interesting regrowth ,and bizarre shapes. I am sharing a few pictures. I rode around in the golf cart while hubs payed golf, and everywhere I turned... a new shape. It was so interesting!
I used old doors from our 1938 home to make this privacy screen for our backyard. I used to hinges to attach them to each other. I painted them and sealed them with Helmsman since it would be outside. For more pictures, and outside decor ideas visit my blog at www.notjustahousewife.net
