All that hard work to enjoy the relaxation more – it’s beautiful!
One day…we always seem to be moving on to another project. Maybe deep down that is what really gives us relaxation.
I LOVE that redbud (or is it a tree pansy?) Gorgeous and you guys should both be incredibly proud of yourselves. You have certainly created a lovely place to spend time outdoors :)
There is a crepe myrtle, and the one you may be talking about is some kind of weeping tree. There is also a witch hazel in there, some rose bushes and a lilac. I’m horrible with the names of plants/trees.
I am sure it is a redbud. They have those peculiar heart shaped coloured leaves :). I love witch hazels and crepe myrtles. We have a crepe myrtle here and lilacs are very hardy things that possums don’t seem to like. Lovely garden with lots of lovely scented things in there and colour from the beautiful flowers kudos on your choices whether you know what they are or not ;)
We were just walking around the pond, and I asked Chris. He said it was a weeping redbud.
It may have been a lot of hard work but the results are amazing. Enjoy your space.
It’s really nice to do yoga out in front of the waterfall.
It sure would be.
That is so lovely! Hard work, yes, but so rewarding and for so long . . . Are those seats suspended so they swing? I have friends with one of those and we used to go to sauna and then sit and swing while we cooled off . . . ~ Linne
Yes, they are suspended. I have always wanted one of the double glider swings since my youth. It was two years ago on my birthday that my husband built this for me. We have a couple of grape vines started up the sides….maybe one day we will have grapes while we swing.
