Summer FunLynn and our friend and fellow artist Mack Miles having fun in the sun. So far this summer, I’ve enjoyed working outside in my garden, tending to my flowers, taming my mint patch, and with Steve, completing a very rewarding project improving up the pool house in our neighborhood. We put up party lights, got a little refrigerator, and made a small bar. The walls are cinderblock, but we worked with what we had without spending a fortune, and it looks super! We added a fire pit behind the pool house and lots of container pots filled with trailing succulents, New Guinea impatiens, and spikes. The pots look great, and they hide a few unsightly spots like utility boxes. I love hearing the sound of water trickling in the pool each morning when I water and deadhead the flowers. It’s very Zen. Come and visit – we’ll be at the pool!
Getting It DoneWe employed some local muscle to build our firepit in the form of friends Will Strickland and Drew Casingal. Here they are enjoying a job well done!
