Back Deck Bistro


Yesterday and today’s weather was just perfect.    Yesterday,  I found the most lovely patio table and chairs in my favorite color: red.  Its just what was needed to liven things up and bring everything together on the deck.

My patriotic quilt and pillows are a temporary prop….

So now I have the ability to seat 10 people in chairs on my patio, and several others on the step and bench.  The big picnic table and benches were moved to the gazebo…which will be great because the painted table is protected from the elements.   (And provides a shady place for summertime mosaic making.)

I had a few friends over today…Kat, Gail and Nan.  We officially opened the deck sitting season:5-20-10 patio 003

We talked, laughed and admired Gail’s awesome circle quilt:

What a nice day it was.  And, if you’re looking for me….I’ll be in the backyard.
