Here it is!

Just a quick post today, but some of you asked to see photos of the 'CLEAN' patio, so I took a few shots just now.  I'm sorry there's no blue sky for you to see!!

Your patio and gardens look very inviting, Thisisme. No doubt the area will need some sweeping and tidying up on the eve of the big day but the bulk of the work has been done. Have a super day in Devon, dear friend!

You live in a beautiful house too - looks like no one is around you for miles. Great area.

EVERYONE - Thank you so much for all your comments. I am very lucky that my hubby is doing all these things and I do appreciate it. I'm glad you all liked the patio area. BB - yes, it is the little things that mean a lot!

Odie Langley said...

I am so impressed. He did an awesome job and it looks wonderful. He deserves something special for all that good work.

Thisisme. said...

Odie - you;re right, hubby does deserve something special for all the hard work that he's been doing round the place. I will get on the case my friend!

vintch said...

oh my goodness. what absolute beauty. looks like the PERFECT place to walk out, have a warm cup of tea in the morning and just soak up the day. you are one lucky (and supremely talented!) lady!

Thisisme. said...

vintch - lovely to see you over here my friend! Yes, it is a lovely spot. Very peaceful, and I am one lucky lady!!

Can I just say that your garden is worthy of any garden & home magazine. I'm serious. It's beautiful. The wedding there will be amazing. Give hubby a big hug for all that hard work (that's the least you should give him!!). You really should be in a magazine.

Thisisme. said...

Bouncin'Barb - thank you so very much for your lovely comments about the garden dear friend! What can you mean?! "that's the least you should give him??!!". LOL!!

Belle said...

You have such a beautiful place there. So much greenery! The patio looks terrific and I love the statues.

Thisisme. said...

Belle - thank you. I do love having statues around I must admit!

On My Soapbox said...

Oh, that is just lovely! Hubby did a bang-up job. :-)

Donna B said...

Oh WOW Diane!! I love it!! So peaceful and serene...are you up high? Looks like you have a view...

Love your new header picture too!

I wish I had a yard like that it looks so great lucky you.

I walk out to my backyard and I want to cry it is half mowed and there are toys everywhere and of course there are my two dogs and all there droppings which I am the only one clean up.

Hubby has a terrible habit of starting the lawn and for some unknow reason will only do half of it and then say he is buggered and wants a rest, which means he sits in his armchair puts his feet up and goes to sleep and the yard remains unfinished. I have suggested that he pays someone to do it but he doens't want to do that.

Damn I am rambling again sorry.

Thisisme. said...

On My Soapbox - thank you. Yes, he did a very good job and must have worked quite hard whilst I was off enjoying myself!!

Donna B - it is lovely and peaceful where we are. No, we are on the flat, but have fields all around us.

Jo-Anne Mother and Nana - that must be very frustrating when your hubby only cuts half the grass! You would think that he would finish it off the next day! You can ramble on any time you like my friend!

EvaMarie Sa said...

Wow! That looks absolutely fantastic, he did a great job :) I love the setup you have, really beautiful!

kneesandpaws said...

Wow, that is fantastic! How wonderful to have such a beautiful space for enjoying life.

And he didn't cover all the conservatory or anywhere with filthy water - what a star!
It looks fabulous. I am most envious- ours doesn't look as sparkling as that.
Very glad you had a nice time away and now I hope the sun shines brightly for the next couple of months for you.
XOXO

Thisisme. said...

Eva Marie - yes, it is lovely, but I still wish I could paint like you!!

knees and paws - yes, it's lovely sat out there on a nice, warm day!

Facing50 - hallo! Haven't seen you over here for a while!! Well, I have noticed that the conservatory doors will have to be cleaned, after hubby used the power washer, but I'm not complaining - much!!!! I do so hope that it will be dry at least for the next month!!
