I am extremely happy with our backyard right now however. It's really our first real backyard - with actual grass and entirely no need for shoes.
We've made two sitting areas - a "living room":
|Seating from The Bay, pillows and kiddie chair from Real Canadian Superstore|
And a "dining room":
|Patio umbrella from Pier 1, wicker chairs from Homesense, table from Canadian Tire and metal chairs from Home Depot|
Yeah the grass is a little dry (it's been so hot and dry I'm surprised Toronto hasn't lit on fire) and we're battling clover and crab grass but it's lovely to spend all day, every day, going in and out through the screen door in our bare feet and just spraying ourselves with the hose when we get too hot.
Oh, and not to mention having room to grow vegetables!
|Tomato plants. Not the prettiest of plants, but the yummiest!!|
|A lone bell pepper|
|If you are hungry, here take my pickle....cause I love the way you call me baby...and you take me the way I am....|
I'm heading outside!
